Legacy Fighting Alliance 34 – Brandon Jenkins

By Lance Edwards   At LFA 29, Brandon ‘The Human Highlight Reel’ Jenkins (11-5) had one of those fights where everything but the kitchen sink was thrown. His opponent ‘Crazy’ Carl Wittstock (9-3) is one of those old style fighters who has a lot of heart and was there for the duration. “I’d say the fight against Wittstock went pretty well. I hear it was one of the best fights of 2017.I inflicted a lot of damage in that fight and he just kept coming at me. The cage was covered in blood! Definitely my favorite fight so far in my career!” There was a lot of talk going into the fight, and Jenkins had actually referred to Wittstock as having a “black belt in shit talking” prior to the…

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…
