Spike Carlyle will return to the Legacy Fighting Alliance this Friday in his first fight since being released by the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
Carlyle (9-3) will headline LFA 103 against Batsumberel Dagvadorj. The event caps off a busy March for the LFA, which saw the promotion put on three shows. The eight-fight card is now official after the weigh-ins took place, with all fighters except for Cynthia Arceo making weight.
After impressing in his UFC debut with a TKO victory over Aalon Cruz, Carlyle’s limitations were shown after he dropped decisions to Billy Quarantillo and Bill Algeo. “Alpha Ginger” will look to rebound impressively here by showing off an improved skillset in his first fight of 2021. Carlyle had no issue making weight and officially weighed 155.6 pounds.
Also coming off a defeat is Dagvadorj (7-1), who suffered the first loss of his career in his attempt to win the LFA welterweight title. While he didn’t walk away with gold, “The Mongolian Falcon” put on a "Fight of the Year" contender against Maycon Mendonca that left fans impressed. His most noteworthy victory so far is a win over the veteran James Terry. Dagvadorj stepped on the scale weighing 156 pounds.
The LFA 103 main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The two-fight preliminary portion will air on LFA’s Facebook page starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
