When Legacy Fighting Alliance visits California in June, its 170-pound title picture will become a little clearer.
LFA 13 will take place June 2 at the Los Angeles-Burbank Marriott Convention Center in Burbank, Calif., and anchoring the event will be a pivotal welterweight showdown. Curtis Millender, who has won three of his last four bouts, will step into the cage to take on Texan Kevin Holland in the main event, with the winner one step closer to a title shot.
Millender is coming off a second-round TKO of Johnny Cisneros in January at Bellator 170. He had dropped three of four at one point in 2015 (two of the losses were in the Bellator cage) but “Curtious” Curtis has turned things around nicely, winning his last two bouts.
Holland, meanwhile, has been cleaning house at both 185 and 170 pounds. “Trail Blazer” has won his last five since losing to Rafael Lovato Jr. at Legacy FC 46 nearly two years ago. All five of his wins on his current torrid streak have come via submission or knockout.
The LFA 13 co-feature will see Alex Reyes taking on Karen Darabedyan, also at welterweight. Dominick Reyes will take on fellow light heavyweight Jordan Powell as well. Rounding out the main card will be a pair of bantamweight battles: Boston Salmon versus Trent Meaux and Kyler Phillips against Jonathan Quiroz.
