On Friday October 17, 2014, Legacy FC heads to the Route 66 Casino in Albuquerque, NM for Legacy FC 36: East vs. Lewis.

With Bellator, One FC and M-1 going on the same day, fight fans with have no shortage of content this Friday and the card at Legacy FC 36 makes a compelling argument for why you should tune in.

Cody East vs. Vernon Lewis

The nights main event will feature a clash of heavyweight titans as Cody East (8-1) puts his five-fight win streak on the line against the heavy-handed Vernon Lewis (4-2), who is currently riding a four-fight win streak after dropping his first two pro bouts. East is the current KOTC heavyweight champion and has a lot riding on getting a win in Albuquerque. Of course, Legacy fans should already be familiar with Lewis, as he made his first appearance with the Texas-based promotion in April of last year at LFC 19.

Damacio Page vs. Brian Hall

For the co-main event of the evening, fans will be treated to a flyweight title fight as Damacio Page (18-9) will look to best Brian Hall (7-2) for the promotions vacant 125 lb. strap. Page, a UFC and WEC veteran, has won his last two bouts and all three of his Legacy FC fights. He was originally scheduled to take on Brazilian standout Allan Nascimento, however due to a breakdown in communication, the hometown favorite will take on the Memphis-based Hall, who has competed in Bellator MMA, winning both outings, and most recently bested Pedro Souza last August at LFC 34.

Any card where you can find quality heavyweights being featured is reason enough to tune in, however a clash between two seasoned flyweights for a scheduled five-rounds is also worth watching.
