Breaking News: Flores replaces Melancon in Spratt fight

Written By: Barry Laminack has learned that Antonio Flores will be replacing Brian Melancon on the July 22nd Legacy Card (Legacy FC 7).

Brett Boyce of Made to Win told via text earlier this morning.

Flores is the third opponent scheduled to face Pete Spratt (22-20) in this slot on the card. Originally Mike Bronzoulis was to face Spratt, then it was Brian Melancon.  Both vacated the spot after signing multi fight deals with Strikeforce.

Flores is the IXFA 170 pound champion who last fought in October 2010 against Brandon McDowell. He beat McDowell via TKO in the 1st round to win the belt.

Flores brings heavy hands and a relentless attack into the fight, and should prove to be a solid test for the UFC vet Spratt.
