The lineup is taking shape for November’s Legacy FC 25 event, and some notable will be part of the fight card.
Legacy FC promoter today confirmed the lineup with MMAjunkie.com. The event takes place Nov. 15 at Houston’s Arena Theatre, and the main card airs on AXS TV.
Legacy FC lightweight and welterweight champion Jorge Patino, who’s riding a seven-fight winning streak, headlines the event against an opponent to be determined.
