LFA Poster

Tonight Legacy Fighting Alliance goes down at the newly built arena at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, MN.  LFA 34 Brings us a stack of great amateur and professional bouts with fighters from all over the country and midwest including several fighters we are very familiar with.

LFA Weigh-insThe main LFA 34 card kicks off with a bout with someone very familiar to the midwest MMA scene in the 15-8 John DeVall. DeVall is the king of the upset with victories of some of the midwests top prospects like Kevin Gray and Darrick Minner. He takes on a tough 4 time LFA vet in Nathanial Jennerman (10-3) who is coming off a submission victory over Samuel Toomer III at LFA 29 last Decemeber.

Following the DeVall vs Jennerman fight is a guy people in the midwest are super familiar with in Darrick Minner (20-7) I mean he has 27 professional fights in just 5 years. Minner has found his new home at featherweight with LFA and looks to dominate his opponent Jordan Griffin (12-5) these two experienced fighter look to leave everything in the cage and we expect to see a pretty solid ground battle between the two of them, with both of them coming off guillotine submissions in their last fights.

The Co-Main event of the evening features one of Kansas City’s top prospects in welterweight Trey Ogden (9-2) Ogden is coming off his 1st loss in two years after getting submitted by Thomas Gifford in December at KCFA 25. Ogden looks to raise his stock in the welterweight division as he takes on the experienced Travis Perzynski (16-7).

In the Main Event LFA 34 Features a Lightweight title fight, LFA Champion Rob Watley (9-1) is hoping defending his forth title defense is the trick to get him a call to the UFC. But, although he hasn’t lost since his pro debut in 2014, he can’t look past his opponent Brandon Jenkins (11-5) who looks to put his winning streak to an end and take home the LFA Lightweight Title. Jenkins is coming off a 3 round decision victory over the always tough “Crazy” Carl Wittstock.
