Legacy Fighting Alliance continues the second phase of its comeback with LFA 89, although there is no title up for grabs on this show.
The six-fight card is headlined by a bout between lightweight contenders Brant Moore and Joe Giannetti. Moore (7-1) is undefeated within the promotion, rattling off three wins since the promotion’s inception. Currently on a five-fight win streak, he’s coming off a submission win over Nation Gibrick, and prior to that, captured a decision over Edmilson Freitas. “Killer Bee” had no issue making weight and came in at 155.8 pounds.
Making his LFA debut is Giannetti (9-2-1), who is riding a two-fight finish streak. He’s stopped eight of his nine opponents before the final bell, and is coming off a submission of Roberto Yong and a knockout over Keenan Raymond. Living up to his “Skeletor” nickname, the lean six-footer Giannetti made weight at 155.2 pounds.
Although all fighters that hit the scales made weight, one fight is off: Jessy Ebrecht did not attend the weigh-ins ahead of his scheduled bout with Viecheslav Borshchev, and it has been canceled.
The LFA 89 main card will air in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
