The Legacy Fighting Alliance ends the month and its third phase with a title fight on Halloween weekend.
LFA 94 is headlined by a women’s strawweight title tilt as Crystal Vanessa Demopoulos (113.4) returns from an unsuccessful outing on Dana White's Contender Series to defend her LFA 115-pound crown. Demopoulos won the title in a thrilling battle against Sam Hughes in July, where she put “Sampage” to sleep with an ultra-rare inverted triangle choke. Her opponent Lupita Godinez (114.6) has yet to lose as a professional, with most of her bouts going the distance including a victory at Combate Americas show in 2019. This will be the Canadian’s LFA debut.
The co-main event features a catchweight contest as Bellator MMA vet Aaron McKenzie (156) squares off with one-time Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Joe Giannetti (158.2)*, and Giannetti missed weight ahead of their meeting. Chase Gibson (146.4)** also struggled to make weight ahead of his scheduled featherweight scrap with Thai Clark (146), as did Ryan Hayes (138.6)*** in what should have been a bantamweight battle with Fernando Garcia (135.8).
LFA 94’s six-fight main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET. Two preliminary bouts will stream on LFA’s official Facebook page starting at 7:30 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
