Ex-NBA First Round Pick Royce White to Make MMA Debut at Legacy Fighting Alliance 120



Former NBA first-round draft pick Royce White will make his mixed martial arts debut against Daiqwon Buckley at Legacy Fighting Alliance 120 on Friday.

The promotion confirmed the bout following a report from MMAjunkie.com on Monday. LFA 120 takes place at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minn., and streams on UFC Fight Pass. White announced that he was making a transition to MMA in 2019 that coincided with the release of his book “MMA x NBA: A Critique of Modern Sport in America.”

A 6-foot-8, 260-pound power forward who was an All-American at Iowa State University, White was drafted by the Houston Rockets in 2012. His NBA career would consist of three games with the Sacramento Kings in 2013-14 before he was released. He has since played overseas and in the NBA Summer League.

Buckley, meanwhile, is a former fullback at Temple University with a 1-1 mark as an amateur. He last competed in April 2017, when he submitted Austin Swoyer in the third round at Pa Cage Fight 28.
