LFA Has First UFC Signing

The Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) is the premier developmental organization in MMA.

Cynthia Calvillo needed just one appearance under the banner of the new Legacy Fighting Alliance to get called up to the big show— the UFC. The teammate of the UFC “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant is 3-0 professionally (8-1 overall) with five total finishes (four KO/TKOs.) The LFA notified their fans of the signing today through their Facebook page ahead of LFA 4.

Calvillo debuted with the LFA at their inaugural event LFA 1: Peterson vs. Higo back on January 13. She finished the 6-4 Legacy FC veteran, Montana Stewart, by TKO in the third round of their bout. She is the first UFC signee under the newly merged LFA.
