Legacy Fighting Alliance 38 – Maurice Greene

Maurice “The Pirate” Greene is a colorful character who has the personality to go with his six-foot-seven frame. We last saw him at LFA 19 when he dispatched the then undefeated Jermaine McDermott (3-1) via choke. At LFA 38, Greene challenges the current heavyweight champion, Jeff Hughes (8-1) in what proves to be an exciting showdown. Originally from Broad Alburn, New York, Greene moved to Chicago and now resides in Minnesota; “I went through grade school there then moved with my dad. I returned to do high school. Most people think I’m from Chicago. I have two friends flying out from New York for this fight. They have flown out for every fight. People ask me what’s my biggest fight and it’s always been the next fight. If you are…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 38 – LFA Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hughes

By Lance Edwards   Jeff Hughes (8-1) came in as the underdog at LFA 26 and walked out of the cage the new LFA heavyweight world champion. Hughes went a grueling five rounds against the then champion, Richard Odoms (13-4), and won a unanimous decision. Hughes returns to the cage at LFA 38 when he faces the six-foot-seven giant, Maurice “The Pirate” Greene in his first title defense. Hughes’ win over Odoms demonstrated that he could hold his own against a very skilled veteran. It also demonstrated that he has the ability to weather the deep rounds of a title fight and emerge victorious. “I was pleased with the fight, but I didn’t get the finish and that was disappointing. I took the fight on shorter notice. It was actually…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 38 – Tat Romero

By Lance Edwards   Indelacio Tat “Mean Bean” Romero (28-6) is a veteran of both RFA and Legacy FC, and now makes the transition to LFA. Standing at just five-feet-six inches tall, Romero doesn’t have the height and reach of a lot of other welterweights. He makes up for it in tenacity and a lower center of gravity which certainly aids his wrestling. He returns at LFA 38 to fight Dane Sayers (12-3). In 2010, the two fought, with Romero taking the split decision. For this fight, Sayers aims to get vindication, and Romero is determined to show the previous win wasn’t a fluke.   Romero made his professional MMA debut way back in 2004. With a background in wrestling, Tat had his first wrestling match at three or four…

Jeff Hughes – Success by Determination

By Paul L   The people of Ohio have a deep history of hard work and blue collar labor. Home to many early manufacturing jobs, including steel work, machine manufacturing, and resources processing, its people have known nothing but grit and determination in and out of the workplace.   This dedication and resolve is nothing new to Friday’s LFA 38 heavyweight title headliner, Jeff Hughes. Growing up in a split household, Jeff would be bounced back and forth between divorced parents. Where stability lacked in his family life, Jeff found in work. Starting at an early age, his ethic towards blue collar labor would fill the gaps in his home life, an escape where he could forge his own sense of normality.   Alongside work, Jeff also found comfort in…
