Inaugural Women’s Flyweight Title Bout Added to LFA 4
The Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) is the premier developmental organization in MMA.
The LFA announced today by way of Facebook that prospect Andrea “KGB” Lee of the all-female Invicta Fighting Championships has been added to their fourth event on February 17. The 5-2 27-year-old has a previous history with Legacy that dates back prior to the recent merger with the Resurrection Fighting Alliance. She was the Legacy FC women’s amateur flyweight (125-pound) champion and was the division’s final pro champion.
“My fight with Heather (Bassett) will not disappoint if you like a good old-fashioned fistfight because I think that’s what we are both planning for. Either way, I feel like I’ve fought the higher level of competition and I’m more prepared as a result. No bad blood between Heather and I, but I expect you won’t know it when the bell rings. We are both sluggers and I think this will be a very crowd pleasing fight. Don’t get it twisted, though. I absolutely plan on a finish. I’m not gonna drag this one out” Lee told the RFA’s website (keep an eye out for the official launch of the new LFA site.)
Lee, largely a Muay Thai Fighter, is a two-time Louisiana State Golden Gloves Champion, a WKA Amateur North American Kickboxing and Muay Thai Champion, and an Amateur National Golden Gloves Champion among other accolades. According to Lee when speaking with InsideSTL.com directly, she will continue to fight for both Invicta and the LFA.
The scrap will be yet another instance of the RFA going up against Legacy as “Handguns” Bassett (4-2) is an RFA veteran as both an amateur and pro fighter. Both women enter the LFA with four stoppages (2 KO/TKOs and submissions each.) Bassett is riding a 2-0 streak after appearances with the California regional promotion, King of The Cage.
LFA 4 features Kevin Aguilar and Raoni Barcelos in the main event for the inaugural LFA featherweight (145-pound) championship which will be broadcast on AXS TV at 8 p.m. CST.
