Rumor Mill: The Pit returns; Macaco gets TUF Alumn; + More!

Written By: Barry Laminack

Rumor has it that 4oz Fight Club‘s Daniel “The Pit” Pineda, fresh off his win over the highly regarded Frank Gomez on HDNet fights at Legacy FC 7 is looking to get on the September Legacy FC 8 card. No mention of an opponent yet.

Rumor also has it that Gold Team Houston‘s Jorge “Macaco” Patino (24-13-1) could be facing off against TUF Season 11 fighter Seth “The Polish Pistola” Baczynski (13-6-0). Baczynski is 2-0 after losing to Brad Tavarez on the season finale of The Ultimate Fighter 11.

It was rumored that Macaco would get the winner of the Pete Spratt vs Antonio Flores fight, but that fell through after Spratt won and informed via twitter that he had previous comittments.

“I have prior obligations that were signed way before I fought Davis. So it may or may not. This is news. I don’t really care,” Spratt said.

Another rumor floating around regarding Legacy FC 8 includes a possible fight with Evert Gutierrez and Alex Morono. This was mentioned on Facebook so it hasn’t gotten much traction yet (but stay tuned, as soon as we hear something we’ll let you know).

As of now, if the rumor holds true, the September card looks like this:

  • Daniel Kim vs Mark Garcia
  • Bubba Bush v. Josh Foster
  • Lee Higgins vs Scotty Juares (originally slated for July 29)
  • Ricardo Talavera vs. Rashon Lewis
  • Chad Robichaux vs. Humberto DeLeon (125 lb. title fight)
  • John Malbrough vs. Jeff Rexroad
  • Evert Gutierrez vs. Alex Morono (rumored)
  • Jorge “Macaco” Patino vs Seth Baczynski (rumored)
  • Derrick Lewis vs, Ike Villanueva (rumored)
  • Andrew Craig vs. ??? (rumored)
  • Daniel Pineda vs. ??? (rumored)
