Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) CEO Ed Soares announced earlier this month that LFA will host three consecutive weeks of LFA events in April. The first of the three will be LFA 8, which will serve as the first nationally televised MMA event to take place in the state of South Carolina. It will also be the eighth LFA event to take place after the strategic merger between leading developmental organizations Legacy Fighting Championship (Legacy FC) and Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA).
The main event of LFA 8 will feature a heated battle between two of the hottest flyweight prospects in the sport. The surging Legacy FC standout Cee Jay “The Autobot” Hamilton will look to defend his southern stomping grounds against unrelenting upstart Jesse Bazzi. LFA 8 – Hamilton vs. Bazzi takes place Friday, April 7th at the TD Convention Center in Greenville, South Carolina. The entire main card will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
