By Tristen Critchfield Jan 26, 2021


A flyweight championship tilt between Victor Altamirano and Carlos do Carmo Motta will serve as the headliner for Legacy Fighting Alliance’s centennial event on Feb. 19.

The promotion announced the card on Tuesday. LFA 100 takes place at Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas, and also includes a middleweight tournament semifinal between Anthony Adams and Gregory Rodrigues. The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, and a limited amount of fans will be allowed to attend. The winner of Altamirano vs. Motta will become LFA’s seventh 125-pound champion, the last four of which are currently in the UFC.

The 30-year-old Altamirano enters the matchup on the strength of back-to-back wins over Chris Ocon and Lloyd McKinney in 2020. He owns an 8-1 career mark, with all of his triumphs coming under the LFA banner. “El Magnifico” has finished four of his wins by submission and one via TKO.

Motta, meanwhile, is 5-0 thus far in his professional tenure. The 25-year-old Brazilian is coming off a 36-second TKO victory over George Martinez in his promotional debut at LFA 79. Three of his triumphs have come in Shooto Brazil.
