LFA To Air Events On UFC Fight Pass

The Legacy Fighting Alliance promotion was left without a home after they were booted from AXS TV after the channel was purchased by Anthem Sports & Media

However, a new home has been found for the LFA as the promotion will air their events live on UFC Fight Pass.

LFA CEO Ed Soares issued the following statement to MMA Fighting on the deal:

“I couldn’t be happier to have partnered up with the UFC. With the amount of fighters we develop for them it couldn’t be a better fit!”

Everything kicks off for the LFA and UFC Fight Pass on Friday, November 15 with LFA 78, which will feature Adrian Yanez and Kyle Estrada in a bantamweight division main event. The year ends for LFA on Friday, November 22 with LFA 79, which features Brandon Royval and Jared Scoggins fighting for the vacant LFA Flyweight Title in the main event. The promotion will also air live events on UFC Fight Pass in 2020, but no schedule has been announced at this time. 

UFC Fight Pass now adds the LFA to a service that already features live events from Invicta FC, Alaska Fighting Championship, CES MMA, Xtreme Fight Night, Pancrase, Cage Fury Fighting Championship and more.
