Leonard Garcia Signs with Legacy FC, Debuts July 19 against Rey Trujillo at LFC 21



Ex-UFC featherweight Leonard Garcia has already found a new home, as Legacy Fighting Championship officials recently announced that Garcia has signed a three-fight deal with the Texas-based promotion.

“Bad Boy” will make his promotional debut against Rey Trujillo, according to LFC promoter Mick Maynard, who told Sherdog.com that the matchup will take place July 19 at LFC 21. The event will emanate from the Arena Theater in Houston and is headlined by a bantamweight title conflict between Angel Huerta and Matt Hobar.

Garcia, 33, lost five straight fights to prompt his UFC release. The hard-swinging featherweight suffered back-to-back defeats to Matt Grice and Max Holloway last year and was outpointed by Cody McKenzie in his most recent outing, dropping a unanimous decision to the “TUF 12” alum on April 27 at UFC 159.

Trujillo, meanwhile, rides back-to-back wins into his showdown with Garcia, as “The Warrior” posted knockout victories over James King and Chris Jones under the Legacy banner to kick off 2013. The 31-year-old made a single Strikeforce appearance in 2010, earning a 28-second technical knockout over Jose Santibanez at Strikeforce “Houston.”
