Legacy Fighting Alliance 9 – Demoreo Dennis

Demoreo Dennis (6-3) is riding a two-fight winning streak, and aims to add a third to that streak when he faces fellow heavyweight Don’Tale “Kong’ Mayes (2-1). This will be both Dennis’ and Mayes’ first fight for Legacy Fighting Alliance, and Dennis is in the unusual position of being the co-main event with his brother, light heavyweight, Myron Dennis (13-6). Dennis’ last MMA fight was in June of 2016, but the Oklahoma native hasn’t been slacking off since then, continuing to build his skill set. “I’ve been training my ass off; I can’t remember the last time I took a day off other than my Sunday rest day. I’ve been grinding to get another fight, as sometimes fights come up on short notice, I keep working. This Legacy Fighting Alliance…

LFA 9 – Breakdown: The Dennis Brothers challenge Danilo Marques and Don’Tale Mayes

By Paul L     No one can accuse Myron and Demoreo Dennis of turning down a fight. The Dennis Brothers will face off against two of the hottest prospects at light heavyweight and heavyweight this Friday at LFA 9.       Myron Dennis vs. Danilo Marques     The main event pits experienced fighter, former TUF contestant, GLORY kickboxer, and former Legacy FC light heavyweight champion, Myron Dennis, against the ultra-dangerous Demian Maia disciple, Danilo Marques.     Myron Dennis utilizes a strong defense with a versatile kickboxing game, a contrast to his brother's more open and aggressive style.

Allen lost by unanimous decision but went five rounds with Anders in a fight for the middleweight title. Anders went on to take a fight in the UFC with Rafael Natal (21-9). “People were saying that he’d be explosive. I felt he won the fight, but it wasn’t a good representation of my ability. It was closer than the judges said. When I went back and looked at the tape after, I could see that. With a few things done differently, I’d have got the decision. I needed to do more on the cage, I’m used to using that as a place to take a break, and…
