Breaking News: Reiswerg set to fight Battle

Written By: Barry Laminack has learned that hot prospect Justin Reiswerg has agreed to fight long time Houston MMA vet Kenneth Battle on the September Legacy FC 8 card.

Reiswerg (4-1-0) is currently ranked #7 and is coming off an electric performance against the always tough Marc Ramirez (#6) at Legacy FC 7.

Meanwhile Battle (2-3-0) hasn’t fought since being submitted by Fernando Rodriguez at Bellator 20 back in May of 2010. His last fight in Houston was against Josh Lee at WGC 1.

Battle is tough as nails and will look to test Reiswerg, who looks to continue his meteoric rise to the top of the lightweight division here in Houston.

The current Legacy FC 8 card is shaping up as follows:

  • Bubba Bush vs. Josh Foster
  • Ricardo Talavera vs. Rashon Lewis
  • John Malbrough vs. Jeff Rexroad
  • Cody Williams vs. Nate Garza
  • Ike Villanueva vs. Larry Crowe
  • Justin Reiswerg vs Kenneth Battle
  • Alex Morono v. Evert Gutierrez
  • Steve Garcia v. Steven Peterson
  • Andrew Craig vs Eric Schambari
  • Jorge “Macaco” Patino vs  Pete Spratt  – 170 title
