Legacy Fighting Championship 21 bill is now set with 12 fights,
including a bantamweight title headliner between Angel
Huerta and Matt
LFC 21 takes place at Houston’s Arena Theater and will also feature
a middleweight title clash pitting Larry Crowe
Bush. The evening’s main draw airs live on AXS TV and will
showcase the LFC debut of welterweight Matt Riddle,
as the UFC veteran collides with Artenas
Featherweights Gerzan Chaw
Caldwell will also do battle on the televised broadcast, as
will welterweights Jonathan
Harris and Matt Rogers.
Reiswerg and Gerardo
Abadie will square off in a 160-pound catchweight bout to round
out the main draw.
Huerta has tasted defeat just once as a professional, earning all
five of his pro victories by way of knockout. “The Chosen One” last
competed on Nov. 16, when he pocketed a 67-second stoppage of
Elizondo at LFC 15.
Hobar, meanwhile, was last seen just five days ago at LFC 19, as
“The Crowbar” took a unanimous decision over Nelson
Salas to earn his crack at the vacant bantamweight belt. Like
his upcoming opponent, Hobar has been beaten just once as a pro.
The Texan rectified that August loss, however, as Hobar took a
majority decision from Steven
Peterson in their December rematch at LFC 16.
