0

Legacy Fighting Alliance kicked off its year in Texas on Friday with an exciting slate of fights.

LFA 121 took place Friday night in Dallas at The Factory in Deep Ellum and produced a number of main card highlights.

The headliner of the night was a welterweight clash between Chris Brown (8-3) against Steve Jones (8-3), which closed the show in their first main event slots with the promotion.

The pair of 32-year-old fighters exchanged kicks throughout the first round, with both men having their moments. Jones pressed the action by stalking his opponent around the cage early, but Brown was ready to counter with kicks when he saw the opportunity.

Jones closed out the round with one takedown and continued that strategy in the second round as he attempted to bring the fight to the canvas. However, Brown was able to get Jones’ back in the dying seconds.

The big moment came early in the final round as Brown rocked Jones with a left hook, which resulted in a flurry of punches as he tried to secure the finish. Jones rushed in and did his best to stop the onslaught, but Brown found himself in the back mount and continued to rain down elbows and punches until the referee saw enough.

Brown, a JacksonWink MMA product, earned his third straight win and second straight victory. During his post-fight interview, he argued for a shot at the LFA welterweight title.

“It’s the only fight that makes sense,” Brown said. “‘Breezy’ looks good in gold.”
