LFA 70 Results, Martin Advances to Heavyweight Tournament Finals by DQ

The Sylvee in Madison, Wisconsin played host to Legacy Fighting Alliance as they presented LFA 70.

The main event was a Heavyweight tournament semifinal, Renan “Problema” Ferreira versus Brett “Big Dog” Martin. Ferreira is a Team Nogueira member making his U.S debut with a hundred percent finishing rate to his. Martin is a Michigan native who has four finishes to his credit, two knockouts and two submissions. The winner  earns a date in the tournament finals with Daniel James. James won his Semifinal at LFA 63 taking care of Patrick Martin with brutal ground and pound.

Martin would advance tonight due to illegal strikes to the back of the head.

Welterweight prospects Mark Lemminger and Isaac Steele faced off in the co-main event. Lemminger came in with six stoppage wins four by knockout, while Steele has split his six finishes equally.
