Legacy Fighting Alliance’s last card of the year takes place tonight at the Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, Minnesota. LFA 120 will feature the crowning of a new women’s flyweight champion, a long-awaited and highly-anticipated debut, and much more.
Headlining the card is a fight for LFA’s vacant women’s flyweight championship between Mayra Cantuaria and Jamey-Lyn Horth Wessels in both fighters’ LFA debuts. Brazil’s Cantuaria has a record of 9-3-1, but all of her losses have been to fighters that have found their way to the UFC in Lara Procopio, Amanda Lemos, and Sarah Frota. She takes a six-fight winning streak into the fight against British Columbia’s Horth Wessels, who is undefeated as a pro at 4-0. She has not fought since February 2020, supposedly due to a lack of fighters willing to fight her.
The co-main event takes place at middleweight, as reigning Titan FC middleweight champion Bruno Assis returns to action in a new promotion against fast-rising American prospect “The Gentleman” Jalin Fuller. “Brunao” Assis snapped a two-fight losing streak to pick up two straight wins with Titan, capped off by a triangle choke submission to win the middleweight belt at Titan FC 70. Fuller, meanwhile, has won all five of his professional fights with four coming by way of finish and four under the LFA banner. He gets a step up in competition tonight in his second straight LFA co-main event.
Also on the main card is a flyweight bout between Tony Laramie, brother of UFC featherweight TJ Laramie, and Tyus White. Both are exciting prospects making their LFA debuts, as Laramie has won three in a row and White is 4-0 to start his professional career.
Before that, two athletes formerly of other sports will square off at heavyweight. Former NBA first-round draft pick and Big 3 Basketball top overall pick Royce White will make his MMA debut at long last, after making the announcement of his transition to the sport over two years ago. The 6’8, 265-pound White will fight former Temple University fullback Daiqwon Buckley, who makes his professional debut as well after a 1-1 record as an amateur.
