Legacy Fighting Alliance 42 – Derrick Krantz

By Lance Edwards Derrick Krantz (21-10) is no stranger to the fans of LFA. The former welterweight champion lost his belt by split decision in September of 2017. James Nakashimna (7-0) took D-Rock, who was making his first title defense, through all five rounds. Krantz has started his path to redemption, and faces off against Kassius Kayne (12-4) in a fight that sees him wrangling his way towards regaining the title. Krantz was by no means happy with the result, and feels that his drive to keep fighting and give the fans a good fight cost him the title. “I fought the fight handicapped, I couldn’t see in one eye. In the first round, he stabbed me in the eye with a finger. I couldn’t see for a month, and…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 41 – Bobby Lee

By Lance Edwards Bobby Lee (8-1) has shown himself to be a solid lightweight fighter with a lot of potential. He fought as an amateur for Legacy fighting Championship, and his professional fights include four for RFA and four for LFA. At LFA 41 he faces the undefeated Brazilian Killys Mota (10-0) in a fight that may well see this twenty-two year old Minnesotan make the lightweight division take note. Lee’s last fight was against Nick Ammerman (4-1), where Lee handed him his first loss via unanimous decision. “It went pretty well. It was nice to get fifteen minutes in with a tough guy and show some of the skills I’ve been working on. It was the best fight of my career, but there’s an asterisk by it. I missed…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 41 – Jeff “The Administrator” Peterson

By Lance Edwards   Jeff Peterson (9-4) has already strung together three wins with LFA. At LFA 41, he faces another tough opponent in Thiago Moisés (9-2). Moisés is coming off a five-round title fight where he went to decision with Robert Watley, but fell short of clinching the title. That in itself demonstrates that Moisés may well be Peterson’s toughest opponent to date. A win for Peterson would most certainly place him in contention for the lightweight title. Peterson’s last fight was against Bellator veteran Mike ‘The Marine’ Richman (18-8). Peterson clinched the unanimous decision in the co-main event and added another win to his record. “It was pretty crazy, one of the first fights where a lot of my game plan really materialized. Stuff that I’d worked on…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 40 – Evan “The Butcher” Cutts

By Lance Edwards Evan “The Butcher” Cutts is a Legacy Fighting Championship and Bellator series veteran looking to make his LFA debut at LFA 40. Cutts will be facing Fortis MMA standout, the undefeated Ramiz Brahimaj (6-0). Brahimaj is hotly tipped as a rising star, and a win for Cutts will see him make a sharp ascent in the rankings. Cutts started training American karate in his late teens, and after testing himself with some friends decided he needed to become better rounded. He met his now business partner, UFC veteran Johnny Bedford, and started his path in MMA. Cutts bought into Fitness Fight Factory in Colleyville, TX. A strong grappler, Cutts earned his Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt from Brandon Quik in February of 2017. Cutts’ last fight was…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 40 – Jeremy “Spooner” Spoon

By Lance Edwards   Jeremy Spoon (21-3) is ranked as Oklahoma’s top featherweight fighter.  Over the past decade, Spoon has racked up only three losses, two of which were by decision including a decision loss to Bellator’s former featherweight champion, Daniel Strauss (25-8) back in 2012. Spoon is riding a five-fight winning streak but his opponent at LFA 40, Damon Jackson (14-2-1) is no slouch. Spoon himself has some rough edges, but by getting involved in MMA he straightened his life out. “I went to college for wrestling and ended up dropping out. I got in a little trouble, and then got into MMA which really helped out. You hear a lot of fighters say they liked to fight, but I don’t think it’s always true. I have an identical…
