On Friday, January 22, the Texas-based Legacy Fighting Championship will once again fill the Arena Theatre in Houston, for LFC 50. This card looks to be another great offering that should not be missed. In the main event, we will get to see Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos face off against Artenas “The Machine Gun” Young in a welterweight showdown that will most likely not make it out of the first round. The co-main event features Justin “The Wolverine” Reiswerg and Jonathan “The Hulk” Harris, two lightweights looking to work their way up the ladder and one step closer to that prized title shot.

It has been nearly two years since Santos has stepped in the cage. The last time we saw him, he was on the receiving end of a  46-second TKO loss to Melvin Manhoef. Santos has never really put together a solid string of wins and is hoping that 2016 will be different. The one thing that we do know is that when Santos enters the cage, he comes out to hurt you and this fight will be no different. Young is deeply in need of a win as he has not put a “W” next to his name since November 2013 where he won a decision over Jonathan Harris. Don’t blink as this fight will showcase two men with everything to lose!

In the co-main event, Reiswerg is coming on a two-fight losing streak, and if he plans to stay on the main card, he will need to get back on the winning side of things. Harris also has not had the best success keeping together the wins with a 4-4 record over his last eight appearances. This will be a classic striker vs. grappler fight where we will get to see who has evolved into more of a true MMA fighter.

Also on the main card we will get to take a closer look at some great up-and-coming talent with a total of five undefeated fighters that will be trying to stake their claim in the fastest growing sport on the planet. Daniel Gustavo Santos (3-0) will look to capture the fourth win of his career when he squares off with Adrian Yanez (3-1). Earlier in the evening, making his professional debut, Clarence Brow (0-0) will get his taste of the big show when Omar Hillail (1-0) welcomes him to LFC.

With no other big shows this weekend this will be a great event to catch. So tune in to AXS TV Saturday and don’t miss this card that could have future champions in the early stages of their climb to the top.
