Legacy FC and RFA have merged to form Legacy Fighting Alliance

If mixed martial arts promotions could form super groups the same way rock bands, consider the newly formed Legacy Fighting Alliance to make the short list of promotions that merged two iconic brands.Legacy FC and RFA have merged to form Legacy Fighting Alliance

It was announced today that Mick Maynard’s Legacy Fighting Championships (Legacy FC) and Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA), ran by Ed Soares, have merged.

“This is an exciting day for everyone involved,” Soares stated. “What our two companies have accomplished individually is remarkable, but the sky is truly the limit when you consider what will come next.”

Soares will lead LFA and be joined by former Ring of Fire and RFA executive Sven Bean who will act as COO.

With UFC matchmaker Joe Silva set to leave the organization in the near future it has been speculated that Maynard will fill the role. There is no confirmation of this as of yet, however it would make sense that if Maynard did take the position, his role with Legacy would have been impacted, thus it makes perfect sense and timing to merge with RFA.

“We believe the merger of Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance is an exciting and logical progression of the sport,” Legacy FC President Mick Maynard stated. “As AAA baseball is to MLB, we will continue to develop the best prospects by providing a proving ground and a stage for the fighters to grow that is unrivaled in the sport. In addition, this merger brings together some of the best minds in the business. It truly is an MMA dream team, and it will continue to build our Legacy in the world of MMA.”
