This Friday night, Texas-based MMA and kickboxing promotion Legacy Fighting Championship, returns for Legacy FC 42. The event is scheduled to take place June 26, at the Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles, La. The main card will air live on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET. This will be their third foray to the Bayou State.

The main event features a lightweight bout between WEC and UFC-veteran Anthony Njokuani (16-10-1), and Bellator-castoff and Fight Masters alumnus Josh Quayhagen (7-3). This will be Njokuani’s second bout under the Legacy FC-banner, who is looking to end a three-fight skid. Quayhagen will be hoping to not suffer his third-straight loss, but who went 3-1 with Bellator MMA, with his only loss coming in a 170-lbs contest.

While the main-event might not be the best example of up and coming talent often featured in developmental promotions such as Legacy FC, it does showcase two very different fighters are two very different points in their career that just happen to matchup very well at this point in time. With a 35-year old , 27-professional fight veteran taking on an unheralded promotional newcomer who is desperate to prove he’s not just a low-level fighter, this one has fight of the night all over it.

The key fighter to watch however is Valentina Shevchenko (9-1), a Kyrgyzstani-born female bantamweight who was last seen sending Jan Finney back into retirement at Legacy FC 39. She is expected to win her fight opposite Brazilian journeyman Kalindra Faria (15-5-1), who is a short-notice replacement for the injured Carina Damm (22-12). If the kickboxing and Muay Thai world champion can be dominant against such an experienced fighter as Faria, which won’t be an easy task, then expect to see her sign with the UFC shortly after.
