Legacy Fighting Alliance 31 – Bobby Moffett

By Lance Edwards One of the most highly anticipated fights starting off 2018 is for the interim featherweight LFA belt. Bobby Moffett (10-2) faces TUF veteran Thanh Le (7-1) at LFA 31. Moffett originates from a grappling background, whereas Le comes from a striking background. A decade ago, we could expect a standard grappler vs striker affair. However, the game has moved on since then, and both fighters have rounded out their skillset. This makes both fighters potentially dangerous in all ranges of combat. In addition, both fighters are motivated by the interim title, as the current 145 lb champion Kevin Aguilar is injured; “It feels pretty good to be fighting for the interim title. I fought for the RFA belt and put too much pressure on myself. This time…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 31 – Thanh Le

By Lance Edwards Thanh Le (7-1) is a fighter who has already attracted a lot of attention. A cast member of The Ultimate Fighter Season 22, Thanh Le was on Urijah Faber’s team. At LFA 31, Le faces The MMA Lab’s Bobby Moffett (10-2) in a bout for the Legacy Fighting Alliance Interim Featherweight Championship. Le recently appeared on Dana White’s Contender Series where he stopped Lazar Stojadinovic (12-6); “The fight went as planned. A finish with a contract would have been nice, but getting the finish was good.” That fight occurred back in July, but since then Le has continued to be active; “Since the Dana White show, I’ve been training and staying ready. I was looking for Aguilar, but he’s out with an injury. I’m happy to have…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 34 – Nate Jennerman

By Lance Edwards   ‘Nasty’ Nate Jennerman (10-3) already has three fights for LFA under his belt, and steps back in to compete at LFA 34. His opponent is the experienced John Devall (15-8) who is riding a four-fight win streak. At LFA 29, Jennerman choked out Sam Toomer (11-2) in the second round bouncing back from his decision defeat at LFA 20 by Bobby Moffat (10-3). “It felt great. The fight pretty much went perfectly for me at the expense of Sam. To go out there and take out a pretty highly touted prospect and do it so one-sided was a good win. There wasn’t a minute of the fight where I wasn’t in control, finished him with a head and arm choke in the second round. On the…

Legacy Fighting Alliance 40 – Interim Featherweight Champion Thanh Le

By Lance Edwards Thanh Le (8-1) is the current interim LFA champion at featherweight (145 lb). At LFA 31, he defeated MMA Lab’s Bobby Moffett (11-3) to claim the belt, as current title holder Kevin Aguilar (13-1) was recovering from an injury. “I was happy with the result, lots good happened. This is the one we wanted though, fighting Kevin. We’ve been waiting. After he won the title, he had the call up to the UFC but had broken his hand. I want to be the one who is called up after this fight.” It’s been a year since Aguilar took Justin Rader (7-3) to a decision victory. Some fighters feel they don’t perform so well after as lay off, whereas others say that being out of fight camp they have the opportunity to improve skills…
