for the vacant Legacy Fighting Championship middleweight
title on Nov. 16, the Texas-based promotion announced Monday.
Legacy FC 15 will now be topped by a light heavyweight
collision pitting jiu-jitsu ace Robert
Drysdale against Chris Reed.
Bush will remain on the bill, taking on Jon Kirk as
part of the main card broadcast on AXS TV. The show takes place at
Houston’s Arena Theatre and will also see unbeaten Carlos
Diego Ferreira face three-time Legacy vet Ray Blodget

Drysdale has submitted all four of his MMA opponents in the first
round, with only one adversary lasting longer than two minutes. A
former jiu-jitsu and ADCC world champion, Drysdale made his Legacy
debut on July 13, finishing Isaac
Villanueva with an armbar in 89 seconds.
Reed has been bested just once in five pro outings, tapping to a
heel hook in January 2009. Following that setback, the Texan spent
more than three years on the shelf before returning to action under
the International Xtreme Fight Association banner this past July,
