The light heavyweight title fight for the Legacy Fighting Alliance is official after the weigh-ins.
The LFA returns for its first of two February events. LFA 99 will crown a new light heavyweight champion as Myron Dennis and Fabio Cherant battle for the vacant belt. While the nine-fight card has been checked in following the weigh-ins, two preliminary competitors came in heavy and have both been fined.
While nicknamed "The Future," Dennis (18-7) has already had a lengthy career spanning back to 2010. An alumnus of "The Ultimate Fighter 23," Dennis has put together three straight wins including a split decision victory over Dylan Potter. The Oklahoma fighter had no issue making championship weight and came in at 203.6 pounds.
Also looking to secure championship gold is Cherant (6-1). "The Water Buffalo" impressed in his promotional debut last year by choking out Erick Murray. While he was stopped by Aleksa Camur in his lone Dana White’s Contender Series appearance, Cherant has impressed in all other bouts. The Massachusetts native stepped on the scales weighing 204.8 pounds.
The LFA 99 main card will air live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. The first two fights of the night will be broadcasted on the promotion’s Facebook page.
