With a featherweight title main event set, Legacy Fighting Championship now has a featherweight co-feature for its December card.
Almeida, from Brazil, brings an unbeaten record into the fight, including a first-round knockout win in his lone Legacy bout at Legacy FC 15, where he stopped Cody Williams. Just this past Friday, Almeida, a Chute Boxe-trained fighter, had to leave the first round for the first time. Deep into the second, he stopped Cemir Silva with punches in Brazil. Prior to that, the 22-year-old’s first 13 pro fights were first-round stoppage wins.
Pacurariu, a two-fight Legacy veteran, will look to get back in the win column after the cageside doctor shut down his fight against Aaron Cerda in the third round at Legacy FC 22 in August, giving Cerda the TKO win. Prior to that, Pacurariu had a four-fight winning streak that included two submissions and a first-round knockout of Steven Peterson at Legacy FC 19.
