After months of inactivity, Legend Fighting Championship will be showcasing its first card/event of the calendar year. And they’re set to do it with a bang, as reports have confirmed that 3 title fights have been slated for the 11th installment of the promotion.

3 title fights set for Legend FC 11
BloodyElbow.com confirmed the match-ups with sources within the Hong Kong-based promotion.
First up, the Lightweight Championship will be defended by Jadamba Narantungalag (8-2) against top contender, Koji Ando (7-3-2). Narantungalag is currently on a tear with an incredible 8-fight win streak, that includes victories over the likes of Yui Chul Nam and Akihiro Gono. Koji Ando, however, has never been finished in his 12 professional bouts, which makes this title tilt an exciting one for fight fans in the region.
Following Bae Myung Ho’s release from the promotion, the vacant Welterweight strap will also be up for grabs when promotional veteran Li Jingliang (7-2) contests ‘The Jedi’, Luke Jumeau (4-1). Both fighters are 1-1 coming off their previous 2 bouts, but its the former who may have the edge having competed 6 times for the promotion.
Agustin Delarmino (6-2) will face veteran, Xian Ji (10-2), in the 3rd and final championship match-up for the vacant Bantamweight strap. The latter fighter is just 25-years-old and has competed for a myriad of promotions including Legend and RUFF. Delarmino, in the meantime, is coming off a loss in his previous bout at Legend FC 9, where he was submitted by Honggang Yao.
