Legacy Fighting Alliance is returning for the first-time in 2024, with LFA174. It will be held at the Mystic Lake Hotel Casino in Prior Lake.
The Minnesota market has been a kind one to LFA, and the promotion will return the favor in kind with a main event pitting LFA lightweight champion JaCobi Jones against Wisconsin’s Kegan Gennrich with the title on the line.
Fight fans are able to stream LFA174 on UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET/6.p.m.PT.
LFA Lightweight Championship — Jones vs. Gennrich
Jones, a FactoryX Muay Thai athlete, is one of the few MMA champs to defend his title after a loss. That’s because Jones recently participated on Dana White’s Contender Series, coming up short against Daniel James Allen on the judges’ scorecards. The undisputed champion is now returning to the promotion where he first became champion. He was initially scheduled to fight the interim champ, Jefferson Nascimento. However, with Nascimento out, Jones will instead fight Gennrich, a hungry prospect in his own right looking to prove he belongs on MMA’s biggest stage.
Gennrich, a 6-foot-2 lightweight, thrives on creating style problems.
