Legacy Fighting Championship has signed former UFC bantamweight
Page to a multi-fight deal.
Sherdog.com 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

Bowles and Brad

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
