On Friday, May 3, Legacy Fighting Alliance hosted its 65th event from the Dobson Arena in Vail, Colo.
In the night’s main event, Colorado’s Brandon Royval took on New Mexico’s Joby Sanchez in a flyweight contest. Royval looked to rebound from an interim title fight loss to Casey Kenney in his last outing. Prior to that, he had won three straight. The UFC veteran Sanchez looked to make it two straight victories inside the LFA cage, having topped Demetrius Wilson in his last outing.
In the first round, Royval maintained his cool through diversity to snatch an armbar and tap to finish the UFC vet.
In the co-main event, Joanderson Brito melted Jose Mariscal with a punch on the button just 44 seconds into Round 1.
