Legacy Fighting Alliance 9 – Myron Dennis

By Lance Edwards   A major personality in the Oklahoma MMA scene is Myron Dennis (13-6). Despite his light heavyweight frame, Dennis exudes a boyish charisma and a cheeky twinkle in his eye. At LFA 9, Dennis makes his Legacy Fighting Alliance debut in the main event. Originally due to face Ryan Spann (9-4), his opponent has recently changed to the six-foot-six Brazilian, Danilo Marques (7-1), after Spann pulled out of the fight. Also fighting in the co-main event is Demoreo Dennis (6-3), Myron’s brother. Dennis himself fought for Legacy Fighting Championship winning the light heavyweight belt when he faced veteran fighter Paul Buentello (36-17).

I’ve been grinding to get another fight, as sometimes fights come up on short notice, I keep working. This Legacy Fighting Alliance…
