On Friday, Feb. 1, Legacy Fighting Championship held its 17th event from Cowboys Dance Hall in San Antonio, Texas.

The event, which aired live on AXS TV, featured UFC veteran Pete Spratt taking on fellow welterweight Dan Hornbuckle. The 42-year-old Spratt has won three of his last four fights, including a 25-second TKO win in his Legacy debut. Meanwhile, Hornbuckle has lost three of his last four, all via decision under the Bellator banner.

In the co-main event, former Legacy heavyweight title challenger Jared Rosholt battled the undefeated Richard Odoms.

The full card featured 10 bouts, with six airing on the television broadcast.

Hornbuckle edges Spratt

In a battle of very experienced veterans welterweight Dan Hornbuckle took home a unanimous decision win over Pete Spratt.

The length of the 6-foot-2 Hornbuckle came into play from the very start. The fighter pawed with his jab, keeping Spratt at distance. In what was largely a defensive round, the two veterans looked for openings with little success.

Hornbuckle found both his range and rhythm in the middle frame, connecting with a variety of body kicks. Spratt returned fire with his right hand, but Hornbuckle responded with knees from the clinch.

A takedown from Hornbuckle opened the final frame, but Spratt was able to return to his feet. Hornbuckle’s front kick complemented his jab throughout the final frame to keep Spratt from landing his powerful right hand. Despite a late flurry from the 42-year-old, it was too little, too late.

Hornbuckle earned every round on each of the scorecards to get back in the win column.

Rosholt smothers Odoms

Heavyweight Jared Rosholt bounced back from the first loss of his career by handing Richard Odoms the first loss of his.

The multiple time All-American wrestler Rosholt quickly took the fight to the ground in the first few seconds of the contest. He moved to side control and then trapped Odoms in a crucifx and rained left hands. Odoms worked hard to get back to his feet, but Rosholt’s control was simply too much as Odoms certainly dropped the round.

Odoms came out swinging in the second which allowed Rosholt to score with a takedown along the cage. A large cut opened on the the head of Odoms as the two crashed to the mat. Rosholt maintained top position for the majority of the round as Odoms continued to bleed profusely.

A desperate Odoms obtained double underhooks to kick off the final frame, but Rosholt somehow ended up on top once more. Rosholt passed to side control and continued to smother Odoms. Short shots from Rosholt allowed him to pass to the mount late in the fight.

When it was all said and done, all three judges at cageside handed Rosholt the decision win.

Aguilar cruises past Gonzalez

Featherweight Kevin Aguilar moved his record to 7-0 with a dominant decision win over veteran Nick Gonzalez.

Aguilar’s speed and striking advantages were apparent from the opening bell. The fighter mixed in a variety of body kicks to accompany his hands, keeping Gonzalez from mounting offense in the opening round.

In the second frame, Aguilar brought the fight to the ground for the first time, showcasing a strong top game. He took the back of Gonzalez and worked hard for a rear-naked choke, but Gonzalez’s experience paid off and forced a third stanza.

Unfortunately for Gonzalez, the third round was a carbon copy of the second as he once again found himself on his back, defending choke attempts from Aguilar. Although Aguilar wasn’t able to find the submission, he took the fight on all three scorecards.

Johnny Ray Rodriguez submits namesake

In a battle of featherweights both named Ray Rodriguez, San Antonio native Johnny Ray Rodriguez defeated his namesake by first-round armbar.

Ray Rodriguez scored early with a big left hand that saw Johnny Ray Rodriguez take the fight to the mat. Johnny Ray Rodriguez showed his grappling prowess, quickly moving to mount and raining big shots. However, he got overzealous and allowed Ray Rodriguez to reverse the position. Johnny Ray Rodriguez did not panic from his back, applying a fight-finishing armbar.

Ybarra rips apart the arm of Buch

Bantamweight Patrick Ybarra kept his perfect record intact with a vicious, first-round armbar over Billy Buch.

Buch started the fight pushing the pace and forcing Ybarra to retreat. However, Ybarra quickly adjusted and began to answer back with knees from inside the clinch. Ybarra took a big risk, going for a flying armbar, but was rewarded as Buch was forced to tap when his elbow was dislocated.

The win marked the fourth straight, first-round armbar win for the 22-year-old.

Trujillo knocks out King

Despite taking the fight on short notice, lightweight Rey Trujillo needed just over a minute to score a knockout win over James “Deuce” King.

After a brief feeling out process, Trujillo let his hands go, scoring with multiple shots. King dropped his hands and ate multiple shots along the fence. Trujillo smelled blood and unloaded, sending King crashing to the canvas.
