Legacy Fighting Alliance 20 – Chad Curry

By Lance Edwards   Chad Curry (9-1) finishes fights! As a professional fighter, he has never gone to a decision, and plans to continue that legacy at LFA 20 when he faces Nick Barnes (11-2). Barnes is a skilled submission artist whose losses came to UFC veteran Brian Camozzi (7-4) and recent TUF winner Jesse Taylor (31-15). Curry is riding a two-fight winning streak which last saw him put away Kyle Kurtz (7-5) at LFA 12 via TKO. “I felt the fight went really well,” Curry explains, “He was a last minute opponent. My original opponent got hurt a week before. He was coming up for a fight, so was in shape and good to go. I trained in camp for a certain style, and with a change of opponent…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 30 – Curtis Millender

By Lance Edwards   “Curtious” Curtis Millender (13-3) has been rocking the LFA welterweight division. In October at LFA 24, he knocked out Matt Frincu (11-3) in just thirty-eight seconds of the first round via head kick. Frincu saw his four-fight win streak curtailed, and Millender increased his own streak to five wins. At LFA 30, Millender returns to the cage to face another tough welterweight in Nick Barnes (12-2). Millender is a dangerous opponent for anyone, and has a lot of experience in combat sports; “I’ve been wrestling and boxing since I was a kid. I started wrestling at seven or eight. My boxing wasn’t very official; I’d go to a gym and hit a bag and things like that. After high school, I took it a bit further.…
