The vacant featherweight title is on the line in the main event of LFA 176. Elijah Johns (9-3) and Alfred Walker (12-6) will collide in a five-round affair, all on 8 days’ notice. The event takes place from the Arizona Financial Theatre and streams exclusively on UFC Fight Pass

Johns has a chance to redeem himself in this short-notice headliner. In his last fight, the 27 year-old fought for gold against Javier Garcia back in July. Johns would lose by second-round submission which snapped a two-fight win streak. 

The Fortis MMA product is on a mission to get back on track with a title win over next opponent Walker. 

It’s two LFA main event spots in a row for Walker who won in his LFA debut vs. Landry Ward last fall. ‘The Freight Train’ pulls into Phoenix with a three-straight victories and looks to make it four this Friday.

Also On The Card:

One of America’s biggest prospects An Tuan Ho (5-0) makes his return in the LFA 176 co-main event. ‘The Highlight’ looks to follow up his 13-second KO in September with a win over Miguel Sanson (4-1).

Sanson will look to bounce back in a big way following a decision loss to Mark Climaco more than a year ago.
