LOS ANGELES – April 21, 2016 – Legacy is back in Tulsa, OK on Friday where two champion Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners will meet for the strap. Rafael Lovato Jr (2-0) is arguably the greatest American BJJ artist ever and he’ll square off with Robert Drysdale Black Belt Marcelo Nunes (5-0) in the night’s main event. Safe to say this one will probably end up on the ground.
Undefeated Andrew “The Sniper” Todhunter (7-0) is also set to return to the Legacy cage, he’ll take on fellow Legacy-vet Evan Thompson (5-2) in the co-main event of the evening. Also on the Legacy 54 card, Charles Byrd(7-4) takes on Trey Houston (12-3) in a fight that should produce plenty of fireworks, and Bilal Williams (4-2), Ed Cline Jr (8-5-1), Derrick Adkins (5-2), and Justin Rader (3-2) are all set to step back in the Legacy cage.
