Legacy Fighting Championship gets ready to kick off another installment of it’s amateur series tomorrow night at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30)at the Verizon Wireless Theatre in downtown Houston. Before we could get to the fighting though, we had to get the weigh ins done. They took place at the Hooters in Humble. For those of you that tuned in at 1:30 to watch them live, we’re sorry that they didn’t get started until after 3pm, but we can’t control when the doctor shows up (our hopes are one day somebody will hold the doctor accountable, but until then…)
A bit of controversy took place when Brandon Boyd showed up expecting his fight with Kolton Englund to be at 145 only to find out it was a catch weight at 150. Boyd declined the fight and after a bit of searching Englund was matched up with Eric Garcia. Garcia was at weigh ins but was eating like a depressed female, so when he climbed on the scale he weighed in at 170 (well over the 150 Englund was at). After a bit of discussion it was agreed that Garcia could and would cut weight and will make 155 and he and Englund will fight for the 155lb title.
At the time of this writing we still had no word on who Boyd will face, if anyone.
The card is packed with 14 fights and it looks like we’ll still have that many despite a number of changes (yes there have been changes even since we posted the “final” card). Consider this the “final final” card, with a possible “final final final” still to come. The major changes are in red.
