On Friday, Dec. 6, Legacy Fighting Championship returned to Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas for its 26th event. The main card aired live on AXS TV.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s vacant featherweight championship was on the line as UFC veteran Leonard Garcia took on the undefeated Kevin Aguilar. Garcia looked to make it three straight wins since his release from the big show, having already stopped Rey Trujillo in July and Nick Gonzalez in September inside the Legacy cage. The unbeaten Texan Aguilar also topped Gonzalez back in February and stretched his record to 8-0 with a first-round submission of Hunter Tucker in April.

Also on the main card, hard-hitting featherweight George Pacurariu welcomed undefeated Brazilian Thomas Almeida to the promotion. At bantamweight, 23-year-old Patrick Ybarra hoped to get back in the win column after suffering a vicious, first-round knockout at the hands of UFC veteran Damacio Page in his last outing. Across the cage from Ybarra, fellow Texan Johnny Ray Rodriguez looked to build on his first-round submission of Ray Rodriguez in February.

The 10-fight event kicked off with four, un-aired preliminary card bouts. The night’s six-fight main card was shown live on AXS TV beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
