Top Texas Pro MMA Circuit Releases Summer Schedule; Headed To Houston, Lubbock, and San Antonio For Next Three Events
HOUSTON, TX, July 8, 2013 – Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard released the rest of their summer schedule earlier today with three fight cards in all coming up statewide between now and September.
The next card (previously announced) is actually coming up in Houston on July 19th with Legacy Fighting Championship 21 anchored by two title fights – including Angel Huerta (6-1) taking on Matt Hobar (7-1) and Larry Crowe (6-2) taking on Bubba Bush (5-2) respectively in the bantamweight and middleweight divisions.
That show also features the promotional debuts of the promotional debuts of both UFC vet Leonard Garcia and top female boxing champion-turned MMA fighter Holly Holm so it should be one heck of a way to kick off the summer for the Legacy Fighting Championship.
See the rest of the current fight card for Legacy FC 21 on our TXMMA Event Calendar here.
As far as Mick Maynard’s most recent announcements go, the busy Texas MMA promoter also confirmed today that the promotion with be headed to West Texas and also returning to the San Antonio area with Legacy FC 22 and Legacy FC 23 taking place in August and September respectively.
We’ll break down these fight cards in much further detail as they near but if the current lineups are of any indication, TXMMA fans in both cities can expect plenty of excitement with top local talent piling on for both cards.
For Lubbock, that means West Texas natives like Paul Buentello, Eric “Big Head” Davila, and Marcus Sursa will all be making appearances at Legacy Fighting Championship 22 along with nearby New Mexico native Damacio Page. The show will also feature Abilene’s Brandon Farran and DFW’s Clayton Robinson along with Houstonian Artenas “Machine Gun” Young who will be fresh off his stint on Bellator’s Fight Masters reality show. Of note for him is that this will mark the return to the area where he scored most of his greatest career successes to date while fighting for the now-defunct Shark Fights promotion.
Meanwhile for San Antonio and Legacy Fighting Championship 23 this September, Fans at Cowboys Dance Hall should no doubt be in for another treat as Texas veteran and local instructor Pete Spratt returns for what should be another striking-based affair against South Texan Danny Salinas. Likewise, the planned co-main event should be another slugfest as well as Leonard Garcia makes the quick turnaround following his LFC debut later this month when he takes on Austin’s Nick “The Ghost” Gonzalez. LFC 23 also features several other locals including Richard Odoms and Rodrigo Pinheiro along with some top talent from the Corpus Christi and beyond so look for this one to be in the running for one of the year’s top Texas MMA cards if everybody competes up to form.
