Host of New Bouts Revealed for October’s Legacy Fighting Championship 24 in Texas



The Legacy Fighting Championship 24 bill received several new additions Wednesday, including a co-main event featuring unbeaten lightweights Chris Feist and Carlos Diego Ferreira. The Oct. 11 event takes place at Allen Event Center in the Dallas suburb of Allen, Texas, and is headlined by a bantamweight tilt pitting ex-UFC talent Damacio Page against Ryan Benoit. The show will also see 2008 Olympic freestyle wrestling gold medalist Henry Cejudo make his promotional debut against once-beaten Texan Ryan Hollis.

The evening’s AXS TV-broadcast main card will also showcase a welterweight showdown between Charles Byrd and Mike Jasper, while Eliazar Rodriguez and Javier Obregon take on Eli Tamez and Damon Jackson at bantamweight and featherweight, respectively.

Six fights are currently slated for the preliminary card, though only three of those bookings are complete, as Edgar Verdin faces Evan Thompson at middleweight and Matt Lozano locks horns with Klayton Mai at flyweight. Meanwhile, Melvin Jordan will collide with Sean Holden at 170 pounds.

Both bantamweight George Pacurariu and welterweight Marcus Penland are expected to compete at the event, though their opponents have not been announced. This is also the case with Abdullah Lawal -- younger brother of current Bellator light heavyweight contender Muhammed Lawal -- who is slated to compete at 185 pounds against a to-be-named foe.
