Lucas Brennan Awarded First Ever Amateur Contract From LFA


Lucas Brennan, son of UFC veteran Chris Brennan, has been awarded the first ever multi-fight amateur MMA contract from the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA).

The fighter’s deal will see him compete three times as an amateur before making his professional MMA debut with the organization. Brennan would then be free to compete wherever he likes once the professional MMA debut bout is completed.

Brennan has only competed once thus far as an amateur, defeating Christopher Williams by third round submission at Xtreme Knockout 37 in August of last year. There is no debut date set yet from Brennan and the LFA, but it should be coming in the next few months.

While the LFA does air live fights regularly on AXS TV, an amateur bout rarely airs on the live broadcast. However, it is unknown at this time if Brennan’s fights will air live due to the historical contract that was signed with the promotion.

Lucas’ father Chris retired from MMA competition in 2012, defeating Brandon Gaines by submission at King Of The Cage: Aerial Assault 1.

Chris competed three times under the UFC banner, defeating Courtney Turner, while suffering defeats to Pat Miletich and Gil Castillo.

Ironically, it is going to be Pat Miletich doing color commentary for LFA events, which means he could be calling the fights of a one time UFC opponent's son.
