Damon Jackson is new headliner for next week's LFA 28 event

Next week’s LFA 28 event has a new headliner, and it’s a rematch.

Officials today announced the cancellation of its original main event after welterweight Evan Cutts (8-3) suffered an injury and was forced out of his fight with Jaleel Willis (8-0), who will be rescheduled for a future card.

The new headliner features former Legacy FC champion Damon Jackson (12-2-1) vs. fellow lightweight Luis Luna (14-6). Jackson was originally scheduled to fight Thai Clark (7-0) in the event’s co-headliner.

LFA 28 takes place Dec. 8 at The Bomb Factory in Dallas, and the main card airs on AXS TV.

Jackson and Luna first met in 2013 at 24/7 Entertainment 9, where Jackson picked up a second-round submission victory. However, Jackson connected on an accidental illegal knee in the opening round of the fight, and the eventual second-round submission loss has been a sore spot for Luna.

Luna, a 32-year-old Texan, is 6-2 since their first fight. Jackson, a 29-year-old and fellow Texas, is 3-1 since his three-fight stint with the UFC that ended in early 2016.

LFA 28’s new co-headliner features middleweights Kevin Holland (10-3) vs. Chris Bachmeier (10-1).

The latest LFA 28 lineup now includes:
