Legacy Amateur Card Updates

Written By: Barry Laminack

Most amateur cards experience several changes, additions and subtractions, and the July 29 Legacy card is no different. It’s a highly anticipated card that has already generated a healthy amount of buzz. Match maker Collin Cantrell just sent out the latest card, so we wanted to put it up for you.

First things first, all three originally scheduled title fights are still on!

The original card was release on June 3 and has already seen 5 fights drop off, including the return of Jordan Gaza to Houston, who was scheduled to square off against Corrine Zepeda (Kingwood MMA).

Other fights of interest no longer on the card include Tucker Dierksheide (Death Row MMA) vs. Mike Smith (RSKA). Instead, Mike Trinh of Metro Fight Club will face Smith. Also Jacob Silva (Silverback MMA) is absent from the card. Silva was set to face Mike Beltran (Gracie Barra Katy). Replacing Silva is Eduan Espaillat (Metro Fight Club).

Charlie Ontiveros (Hard Head Hitters) replaces Corey Allmand (Hoger MMA) and will face James Powell.

Instead of Ricky Turcious Gracie Barra The Woodlands facing Dominque Pittman Team Bailout, he will now be facing Bushi Ban fighter Alex Ramirez.

Crunching a few numbers for fun, here are the gyms represented and how many fighters they have on the card:
