LFA will make its first foray into the “Hawkeye State” of Iowa with LFA 60. The promotion will be heading to the Des Moines metro area for the first time after the merger of RFA and Legacy FC. RFA traveled to Iowa once before the merger at RFA 10 in October 2013. The main event of LFA 60 will be announced soon. LFA 60 takes place Friday, February 15th at the 7 Flags Event Center in Clive, Iowa. The main card will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
LFA will then head north the following week to the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” for LFA 61. The main event of LFA 61 will bring a middleweight world title fight to Minnesota as LFA middleweight champion Brendan “All In” Allen defends his title for the first time against knockout artist and top contender Moses “Motown” Murrietta. LFA 61 – Allen vs. Murrietta takes place Friday, February 22nd at the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota. The main card will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
“I am excited to bring LFA to the Upper Midwest on back-to-back Fridays in February,” stated Soares. “Iowa and Minnesota have a long history in MMA and wrestling so it has one of the most educated and passionate fan bases in the country. We came to Iowa as RFA in October 2013 and have had a long history of exciting events in Minnesota. We look forward to developing the next generation of stars in this talent-rich region in February at LFA 60 and LFA 61.”
