The first ever Legacy Fighting Alliance Featherweight Champion will be crowned at Legacy Fighting Alliance 4 as the final Resurrection Fighting Alliance Featherweight Champion in Raoni Barcelos takes on the final Legacy Fighting Championships Featherweight Champion in Kevin Aguilar.
Barcelos (11-1-0) defended the RFA Featherweight Title twice before the RFA/LFC merger, defeating the duo of Bobby Moffett and Dan Moret. Barcelos defeated Ricky Musgrave at RFA 29 to win the belt. Marcelos actually spent the last two-plus years under the RFA banner, and scored a victory over UFC veteran Tyler Toner in his promotional debut at RFA 11. Barcelos also spent some time in the Shooto Brazil promotion, where he won four of four fights in the promotion.
Aguilar (11-1-0) defeated Tony Kelly at Legacy FC 57 to win the belt, but he was never able to defend the belt prior to the RFA/LFC merger this year. Aguilar is also a former Xtreme Fight Night Featherweight Champion, and defeated Nathan Murdock to win the gold in 2011. Aguilar also held two featherweight titles as an amateur and he held all of them until he turned pro in 2010.
Legacy Fighting Alliance 4 takes place on Friday, February 17 from the Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel & Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana with Raoni Barcelos and Kevin Aguilar headlining.
