LFA announces 3 events, 4 fights, 3 title bouts for January

LFA is coming out strong in the new year.

Officials recently announced three events, including the headliners, for January.

LFA 30 takes place Jan. 12 at OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, Calif., LFA 31 is set for Jan. 19 at Comerica Theatre in Phoenix, and LFA 32 closes out the month on Jan. 26 at Golden Nugget Lake Charles in Lake Charles, La.

All of the events air on AXS TV.

At LFA 30, Curtis Millender (13-3) and Nick Barnes (12-2) – both former LFA headliners and both veterans of the Southern California scene – meet in a welterweight clash. Millender, a former Bellator fighter, carries a five-fight winning streak into his bout with Barnes, a Bellator and RFA vet who’s on a 3-1 run.

At LFA 31, Bobby Moffett (10-2) meets Thanh Le (7-1) for the organization’s interim featherweight title. Moffett, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt with six submissions in 10 career wins, meets Le, a striker with six knockouts in seven career wins, which included a DWCS 2 victory over Lazar Stojadinovic.

Two titles are on the line at LFA 32. Brendan Allen (8-2), who fell short in an LFA title fight with now-UFC fighter Eryk Anders in June, meets undefeated guillotine specialist Anthony Hernandez (5-0) for the vacant middleweight title. Additionally, the inaugural light-heavyweight champion will be determined in the co-main event when former UFC fighter Alex Nicholson (10-4) takes on proven finisher Ryan Spann (12-5).
