Two-division Glory kickboxing world champion Alexsandro Pereira made a successful Legacy Fighting Alliance debut in the main event of LFA 95.
Pereira (3-1) immediately hurt opponent Thomas Powell with a leg kick and started landing huge knees early in Round 1. Powell (4-5) unsuccessfully tried to grapple with the kickboxing great but got demolished with a huge left hook at 4:04 of Round 1.
The co-main event saw Myron Dennis face Dylan Potter, who missed the light heavyweight limit by over six pounds. Dennis (18-7) was able to outwork Potter (8-5) in a tight contest that went the full 15 minutes. While one judge saw the fight 29-28 in Potter's favor, "The Future" took the other two 29-28 scorecards to win a split decision. After the victory, Dennis said he's still improving at 31-years-old and wants a title shot next.
Flyweights Lloyd McKinney and Victor Altamirano put on a fun bout that saw "El Magnifico" come out on top. The grappling of Altamirano (8-1) proved to be the difference as he was able to lock McKinney (14-7) in a triangle choke at 1:57 of Round 2.
Bruno Assis de Souza Filho stayed undefeated inside the LFA against Guilherme Santos. While Santos (8-3) was able to outgrapple Filho (8-1) in Round 1, it was a different story in the second frame. Filho had the superior cardio and was able to batter a tired opponent with punches until the ref waved it off at 2:16 of the round.
The opening bout of the night saw two undefeated heavyweights clash in Mauricio Blanco and Jordan Heiderman. Ultimately, it was Heiderman (3-0) that kept his undefeated record intact as he had a major grappling advantage. Blanco (4-1) was taken down in Round 2 and forced to tap to a rear-naked choke at the 1:43 mark.
