Legacy FC’s first visit to Tunica, Miss., has its new main event.

After Henry Cejudo signed with the UFC this past month, Pedro Souza (12-0) will make his debut with the promotion in a flyweight fight against fellow Legacy newcomer Brian Hall (6-2).

Legacy FC owner/promoter Mick Maynard confirmed the new main event to MMAjunkie.

Legacy FC 34 takes place Aug. 29 at Horseshoe Tunica Hotel & Casino in Tunica, Miss. The main card airs live on AXS TV.

The highly touted Souza, from Brazil, comes in unbeaten with 10 of his 12 wins coming by stoppage. It’s been nearly a year since his most recent fight, a TKO victory at Jungle Fight 56 in his home country.

Hall comes to Legacy FC on the heels of a third-round TKO win over Cortez Phelia at Bellator 120, that promotion’s first pay-per-view event, in May. That was his second Bellator win after a 44-second TKO of Jay Black at Bellator 73. All six of his wins have come by stoppage.

In addition to the main event and as previously announced, Legacy FC 34 features the return of “TUF 12? winner Jonathan Brookins (16-4), who drops to bantamweight to meet recent Bellator and RFA fighter Austin Lyons (11-3) in the night’s co-main event.

The latest Legacy FC 34 card now includes:
