LFA 100 announced: Flyweight title fight headliner, tournament bout featured

LFA is on the verge of a milestone event.

The unofficial UFC and Bellator feeder league will host its 100th event, LFA 100, on Friday, Feb. 19 at the Hartman Arena in Park City, Kan., the promotion announced Wednesday. The event’s main card will stream on UFC Fight Pass after prelims on Facebook.

LFA launched in January 2017, following a merger between Resurrection Fighting Alliance and Legacy FC. Since that time, LFA has promoted fights involving numerous competitors who went on to sign contracts with the UFC and Bellator.

LFA 100’s main event will have the vacant LFA flyweight title on the line. American Victor Altamirano (8-1) and undefeated Brazilian Carlos Mota (5-0) will square off for title gold.

UFC flyweight Jimmy Flick was the last man to hold the promotion’s 125-pound title, but he vacated after a UFC contract-earning performance on Dana White’s Contender Series.

In LFA history, there have been five 125-pound champions. None of them have needed to put forth a successful title defense to get a call to the big show. Roberto Sanchez, Casey Kenney, Brandon Royval and Brandon Moreno all were signed by the UFC before putting their belts on the line.

Joining the flyweight title challengers at LFA 100 is a middleweight tournament semifinal fight between DWCS alumni Anthony Adams (8-2) and Gregory Rodrigues (7-3).

Additionally, DWCS alum Steven Nguyen (6-1) takes on Raihere Dudes (8-1) at featherweight. The fight will be Nguyen’s first since he was knocked out by Aalon Cruz on DWCS in 2019.

The current LFA 100 lineup includes:

  • Victor Altamirano (8-1) vs. Carlos Mota (5-0) – for vacant flyweight title
  • Anthony Adams (8-2) vs. Gregory Rodrigues (7-3) – middleweight tournament semifinal
  • Steven Nguyen (6-1) vs. Raihere Dudes (8-1)
  • Charles Johnson (7-2) vs. Karlee Pangilian (6-0)
  • Christian Natividad (2-0) vs. Evan Woolsey (1-1)
