UFC veteran Damon Jackson will meet Mauro Chaulet in the Legacy Fighting Alliance 83 headliner.
The promotion announced the bout on Wednesday. LFA 83 takes place at The Bomb Factory in Dallas on March 9 and will also see Justin Patterson square off against Matt Dixon in the evening’s welterweight co-main event. The card will air on UFC Fight Pass at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
A former LFA featherweight king, Jackson vacated his belt to compete in Professional Fighters League’s 2019 season, where he suffered a 10-second knockout loss against Movlid Khaybulaev in his lone appearance on May 23. “The Leech” also fought three times under the UFC banner from 2015 to 2016.
The 31-year-old Chaulet enters the matchup on a three-bout winning streak, which includes a split-decision triumph against Samson Phommabout in his promotional debut at LFA 75 this past September.
Three other bouts were also confirmed for the LFA 83 main card: Hailey Cowan vs. TBD at bantamweight; Emeka Ifekandu vs. TBA at featherweight and Vernon Lewis vs. Austen Lane at heavyweight.
