Ex-Bellator fighter Mike Richman will return to his home state of Minnesota on Friday night at LFA 2 to face surging Lazar Stojadinovic in a Featherweight clash that headlines Legacy Fighting Alliance’s second show.
LFA 2 takes place on Friday, January 20 at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota. It’s the promotion’s second show since forming from the merger of Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance at the end of 2016 and comes hot on the heels of last week’s LFA 1.
Richman (18-6) comes home after a 12-fight run in Bellator which concluded with a promotional record of 7-5. The former U.S. Marine hasn’t fought since failing a drug test after a unanimous decision loss to Eduardo Dantas at Bellator 137 in May 2015 and will look to kickstart his career again under the LFA banner.
He will have his work cut out however against the talented journeyman Stojadinovic (11-5), who has put together a seven-fight win streak across the regional scene which includes wins under the King of the Cage and Titan FC banners and currently trains over at American Top Team.
The New Yorker will be looking for a permanent place to call home and is a genuine threat to the Featherweight division if he can beat the veteran Richman.
In the co-main event, Darrick Minner (17-5) looks to build on his current run of form while taking a big name scalp as he faces Chico Camus (16-7), who was released from the UFC last year.
Minner has won eight of his last nine fights however faces his biggest test when he faces Puerta Rican Camus who himself has won both of his fights since he moved to RFA after his UFC stint.
Also on the card, Welterweight challenger Ben Neumann (11-4) will take on newcomer Damion Hill (12-5) and undefeated Lightweight Bobby Lee (5-0) attempts to keep his record in tact against submission specialist Matthew Marsh (4-2).
