LFA 10 Results: Heinisch Taps Rota, Urso Edges Royval

On Friday, April 21, Legacy Fighting Alliance hosted its 10th event from the Massari Arena in Pueblo, Colo.

In the night’s main event, middleweights Ian Heinisch and Lucas Rota went to battle. The pair were originally scheduled to meet at LFA 5, but Heinisch suffered a knee injury in training and the bout was rescheduled. Heinisch, who trains out of Factory X Muay Thai, is a WSOF veteran who entered the contest having won his first seven professional outings. Brazil’s Rota, meanwhile, rode a two-fight winning streak into the headlining bout. He had competed under the RFA and Titan FC banners during his 18-fight career.

The night’s main card aired live on AXS TV at 9 p.m. ET. Above are video highlights of the main card (courtesy of AXS TV).
