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).

Legacy Fighting Alliance 23 – Ryan Spann

Spann challenged for both the middleweight LFC title, which saw him lose a five round decision to Leo Leite (10-0) as well as the light heavyweight title which saw him lose to Robert Drysdale (9-2). Both of whom have won Brazilian Jiu Jitsu world titles. We last saw Spann at LFA 3 where he lost a split decision to Trevin Giles (10-0) in a fight that Spann feels he should have won. “That was bogus; they gave him the first and third rounds.
