The Legacy Fighting Alliance touches down in North Dakota for the first time tonight, as LFA 130 goes down live from the 4 Bears Casino and Lodge in New Town.
In the main event, Polish-Canadian Dana White’s Contender Series alum Mariusz Ksiazkiewicz faces Brave CF and XFC vet Alessandro Gambulino. Following a decision loss to Mario Sousa on the Contender Series in 2020, “The Iron Pol” Ksiazkiewicz did not compete for over a year. When he returned in December of last year, he picked up a first-round finish over WSOF vet Graham Park. He now faces fellow 32-year-old Gambulino, who has won three fights in a row on the regional scene in his native Brazil.
Two intriguing strawweight bouts are set to take place in the two bouts preceding the main event. The co-main event will feature “The Sawed-Off Savage” Marnic Mann, who has picked up stoppage victories against each of her first four professional opponents, taking on the 1-1 Colorado native Kelsey Arnesen. Prior to that, CES, CFFC, and Dana White’s Contender Series vet Hilarie Rose makes her second appearance in LFA against Hawaiian “T-Bomb” Tiani Valle, as both fighters look to snap a two-fight skid.
At welterweight, two prospects are set to square off as “Gangly Gangster” Gage Saunders goes for his fourth straight win against “The Gentleman” Jalin Fuller, who will attempt to rebound from his first professional loss.
