The Legacy Fighting Alliance returns to American soil for LFA 113 with a heavyweight title fight.
All 14 fighters on the Saturday card officially made weight, and the main event title tilt has been cleared. The seven-fight show ends with a heavyweight championship affair, as unbeaten prospect Thomas Petersen vies for the vacant strap against Texas-based knockout artist Vernon Lewis.
Petersen comes into this headliner with a perfect 4-0 record, and he has won all four by knockout. Only Odell Pantin has lasted more than three minutes against him, while he also celebrates a 19-second clobbering of Richard Luis in January. The Minnesota fighter officially weighed in at 242 pounds.
With triple the amount of experience as his opponent, the 37-year-old Lewis (8-4) has won two straight fights, including a majority decision over Tra’von Butler and a first-round knockout of Austen Lane. Lewis will look to end the main event early, and stepped on the scale weighing 264.8 pounds.
The LFA 113 main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The lone preliminary bout will stream on the promotion’s Facebook page.
