The Legacy Fighting Alliance's busy April comes to an end with LFA 106.
Top light heavyweight prospect Joshua Silveira will look to keep his undefeated record intact against Rafael Viana, with the latter competing in mixed martial arts for the first time since 2016. The main eventers had no issue making weight, and all but one fighter hit the scales at their contracted weights. Edwin Chavez missed weight by two pounds for his featherweight bout against Cheyden Leialoha, and the bout will continue with Chavez being fined a percentage of his purse.
Silveira, the son of American Top Team co-founder Marcus "Conan" Silveira, has learned from some of the best athletes in the sport. So far, the grappler holds a 4-0 record having submitted three opponents. He also scored a head kick KO against Cody Rolling, proving he's more than just a ground specialist. Silveira hit the scales well under the light heavyweight limit at 202.2 pounds.
Viana (6-1) has been out of action for five years but will look to show off improved skills in this main event opportunity. The Brazilian suffered the first loss of his MMA career in his last outing, after sustaining a hand injury against Devin Clark. The 36-year-old will look to rebound here and show he still has more left in the tank. "Gaucho" officially weighed even lighter than his foe, clocking in at 200.4 pounds.
The LFA 106 main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. A lone preliminary bout will air on the promotion's Facebook page starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
