And Still - Lovato Jr Successfully Defends Legacy FC Middleweight Belt
What an incredible night has just taken place at Firelake Grand Arena in Shawnee, OK as Legacy 62 has just taken center stage with Legacy FC Middleweight Champion Rafael Lovato Jr defending his title against Bellator veteran, Cortez Coleman. The entire fight was an all out war, starting with Lovato Jr showing his evolution into becoming a more well rounded MMA fighter into Rounds 1 & 2 where he put his stand up game to the test courtesy of the intense training he's undergone since making his transition into the MMA scene with the legendary Evolucao Muay Thai team in Curitiba, Brazil. At 4:04 in Round 3, Lovato Jr was able to take Coleman into his realm where he defeated the Bellator veteran via arm bar submission to successfully defend his title & remain the Legacy FC Middleweight Champion of the world! Not only did he have a very remarkable showing but included on the Legacy FC card was Lovato Jr's first Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt & Legacy veteran Justin Rader & his Pro MMA up & comer Aaron McKenzie who both were victorious in their fights, winning via TKO! Team Lovato MMA went 3-0 at Legacy 62!
Huge congratulations to the Champion, Rafael Lovato Jr as well as his team who also fought on the Legacy card!
