By Tristen Critchfield Apr 11, 2018

Legacy Fighting Alliance’s upcoming schedule will be highlighting a featherweight unification title bout pitting reigning champion Kevin Aguilar against interim titlist Thanh Le.

The matchup will headline LFA 40 on May 25 at the Bomb Factory in Dallas. The evening’s main card, which also includes a 145-pound co-headliner pitting Damon Jackson against Jeremy Spoon, airs on AXS-TV at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Aguilar claimed the inaugural LFA belt with a third-round knockout of Jackson in February 2017, and he defended his crown with a five-round verdict over Justin Rader at LFA 18 last August. A competitor on Season 22 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Le claimed interim featherweight gold with a second-round TKO of Bobby Moffett at LFA 31 on Jan. 19.

Meanwhile, LFA 41 will be topped by a lightweight showdown between former Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion Thiago Moises and Jeff Peterson. LFA 41 takes place at the Mystic Lake Center in Prior Lake, Minn., on June 1 and airs on AXS-TV at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

Moises saw a four-fight winning streak come to an end at LFA 17, where he lost a five-round verdict to Robert Watley for the promotion’s inaugural 155-pound title. Peterson owns a five-bout winning streak that includes a trio of triumphs under the LFA banner.
