Saturday October 8. 2016— Maybe it was the water they were drinking in Minnesota, but Legacy Fighting Championship delivered in finishes last night in the land of 10,000 lakes!
The main event of the night featured the rematch of Tyler “The Beast” East and Brian Heden. Tyler East announced that he would retire after his fight at Legacy 60 because of the lack of gyms in his home town. Brian Heden was able to come back from behind and get revenge on East after losing to him back in 2010, finishing him via TKO in round 1.
Dakota Cochrane’s wrestling skills benefited him in the co-main event of the night. Late in the second round, Cochrane was able to submit Jos Eichelberger by rear-naked choke, giving him his 26th professional win. The quickest fight of the night went to Marcus “Bad Intentions” Edwards who defeated Billy “The Kid” Christianson via TKO, only 12 seconds into the fight.
Here are the highlights:
