Legacy Fighting Alliance 20 – Nate Jennerman

By Lance Edwards LFA 20 sees the return of exciting up and comer Nate Jennerman (9-2) when he steps back in to the LFA cage to face another excellent young fighter, Bobby Moffett (9-2). Jennerman was last seen on AXS TV when he faced Damion Hill (12-8) in LFA 12, a fight that saw him take home the victory in the first round when he submitted his opponent via guillotine choke. Hailing from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Jennerman does the one hour drive nearly every day of the week to Roufusport, where he trains.

Legacy Fighting Alliance 31 – Bobby Moffett

By Lance Edwards One of the most highly anticipated fights starting off 2018 is for the interim featherweight LFA belt. Bobby Moffett (10-2) faces TUF veteran Thanh Le (7-1) at LFA 31. Moffett originates from a grappling background, whereas Le comes from a striking background. A decade ago, we could expect a standard grappler vs striker affair. However, the game has moved on since then, and both fighters have rounded out their skillset. This makes both fighters potentially dangerous in all ranges of combat. In addition, both fighters are motivated by the interim title, as the current 145 lb champion Kevin Aguilar is injured; “It feels pretty good to be fighting for the interim title. I fought for the RFA belt and put too much pressure on myself. This time…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 31 – Thanh Le

By Lance Edwards Thanh Le (7-1) is a fighter who has already attracted a lot of attention. A cast member of The Ultimate Fighter Season 22, Thanh Le was on Urijah Faber’s team. At LFA 31, Le faces The MMA Lab’s Bobby Moffett (10-2) in a bout for the Legacy Fighting Alliance Interim Featherweight Championship. Le recently appeared on Dana White’s Contender Series where he stopped Lazar Stojadinovic (12-6); “The fight went as planned. A finish with a contract would have been nice, but getting the finish was good.” That fight occurred back in July, but since then Le has continued to be active; “Since the Dana White show, I’ve been training and staying ready. I was looking for Aguilar, but he’s out with an injury. I’m happy to have…
