The Legacy Fighting Championship has signed former UFC bantamweight Damacio Page to a multi-fight deal. Friday confirmed the signing with LFC promoter Mick Maynard, who said that Page is expected to debut for the Texas-based promotion on May 31 at LFC 20 against a to-be-named opponent, though the booking is not set in stone.

Page, 30, rides four straight submission losses into his LFC debut. “The Angel of Death” picked up three wins in his first four World Extreme Cagefighting appearances before exiting the promotion with a defeat to future UFC 125-pound champion Demetrious Johnson in November 2010. Page then kicked off his Octagon career with a trio of setbacks, falling to Brian Bowles and Brad Pickett before tapping to an Alex Caceres triangle choke last July at UFC on Fuel TV 4.

LFC 20 takes place in Corpus Christi, Texas, and is headlined by a bantamweight confrontation between UFC veteran Junior Assuncao and local talent Chris Pecero. Additionally, onetime Octagon competitor Antonio Banuelos will locks horns with Jimmy Flick in a flyweight co-feature during the show’s AXS TV-broadcast main draw.
