Legacy Fighting Alliance 29 – Brandon Jenkins

By Lance Edwards   Brandon Jenkins (10-5) is one of the top ranked lightweights in Minnesota. A six-foot-tall 155lber, Jenkins has taken the rough with the smooth during his career. With two previous LFA bouts under his belt, at LFA 29 Jenkins faces Carl Wittstock (9-2). This fight has all the makings of an excellent bout, and one that Jenkins is determined to walk away the victor from.   Unlike some fighters, Jenkins had no intention as a child to go into combat sports; “I was bullied a lot as a kid.

So I found a regional show…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 34 – Brandon Jenkins

By Lance Edwards   At LFA 29, Brandon ‘The Human Highlight Reel’ Jenkins (11-5) had one of those fights where everything but the kitchen sink was thrown. His opponent ‘Crazy’ Carl Wittstock (9-3) is one of those old style fighters who has a lot of heart and was there for the duration. “I’d say the fight against Wittstock went pretty well. I hear it was one of the best fights of 2017.I inflicted a lot of damage in that fight and he just kept coming at me. The cage was covered in blood! Definitely my favorite fight so far in my career!” There was a lot of talk going into the fight, and Jenkins had actually referred to Wittstock as having a “black belt in shit talking” prior to the…
