- The Nevada Athletic Commission has approved LFA’s promoter’s license in Las Vegas
- LFA has been known as the UFC’s most reputable feeder organization
The LFA could now hold events in Las Vegas after the Nevada Athletic Commission granted the promotion of a professional promoter’s license in its jurisdiction.
It was a pleasure
NAC executive director Jeff Mullen lifted the lid on why the commission backed the approval of LFA’s license in Las Vegas on Tuesday at a monthly meeting.
According to Mullen, LFA got their vote because it has been instrumental to the growth of the top-tier MMA promotions worldwide. Ultimately, having LFA in Las Vegas is good for the sport.
“These guys are the top,” Mullen said. “They are just under the UFC and supply more fighters to the UFC and the upper levels – PFL and Bellator – than any other organization in the world. They do fights all over the country and all over the world. They are very well organized and a great organization. I highly recommend them for the state of Nevada.”
A great progress
LFA was formed following the merger of Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance in 2016. It has yet to become as big as the UFC but the promotion has housed a wide array of world-class fighters over the years, including former UFC middleweight champion Alex Pereira, UFC flyweight champion Brandon Moreno, Valentina Shevchenko, and Holly Holm.
Moreover, LFA has earned quite a reputation in the sport as the biggest feeder organization for the UFC in North America.
It is yet to be known when will LFA make his debut in the Fight Capital of the World but needless to say, the approval from NAC will strengthen the brand of the company and more talented MMA fighters are expected to link up with the promotion in the future.
