LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) announced today that the promotion will host its first five events of 2020 across five states to kick off the new year. The action-packed MMA events will take place in New Mexico, California, Minnesota, Texas, and Arizona.
LFA President Sven Bean handles all venue negotiations for the promotion and had this to say:
“As soon as we signed the deal with UFC FIGHT PASS, I immediately went to work contacting venues. With the twenty event schedule for 2020, it allowed me to work with all of our existing top tier markets and venue partners. We will also be returning to some markets that have proven successful over the years, but until recently we weren’t able to schedule dates at those venues. Lastly we will soon be announcing a handful of new agreements with casinos, and other venue partners for events in Q2 and Q3. These events will be in debut markets for the LFA, opening up new territories for us. All in all, 2020 is stacking up to be our best promotional schedule yet!”
