Nick Browne and Arthur Estrazulas will determine the fate of the vacant Legacy Fighting Alliance lightweight championship when they square off in the LFA 97 headliner on Friday at Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas. Bryce Logan vacated the title in November to sign with Bellator MMA.
Browne, 30, enters the cage on a three-fight winning streak. He last appeared at LFA 87, where he took a unanimous decision from Ben Egli on July 31. Estrazulas, meanwhile, has posted back-to-back wins since he wound up on the wrong side of a split verdict against Thiago Tavares under the Professional Fighters League banner in 2018. The 31-year-old Kings MMA rep last fought at LFA 86 on July 24, when he submitted Dominic Clark with a first-round rear-naked choke.
LFA 97 “Browne vs. Estrazulas”—which streams live to UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT—also features a lightweight co-main event matching Jacob Rosales with Jose Martinez, a featherweight scrap pitting Kamuela Kirk against Guilherme Santos and a women’s strawweight affair pairing Kelly D'Angelo with Lovethpatra Young.
