Brendan Allen, Tim Hiley preview LFA 50 main event with Phoenix Carnevale
LFA will make a little history tonight with its 50th event in 20 months.
LFA 50 takes place tonight at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minn. The main card airs on AXS TV.
LFA 50 features a vacant 185-pound championship bout in the main event with Brendan Allen (9-3) vs. Tim Hiley (7-0) fighting for the strap. LFA's middleweight belt again needs a titleholder after yet another champion signed with the UFC. All four 185-pound champs in the promotion's history have gone on to the UFC: Eryk Anders, Markus Perez, Anthony Hernandez and Ian Heinisch.
Allen, a 22-year-old from Louisiana, will get his third crack at a vacant LFA belt in just a little more than a year. At LFA 14, he lost a decision to Anders for the belt. Hiley has back-to-back wins in his first two fights for the promotion. In March, he stopped Willie Whitehead with a TKO in the second round at LFA 34. In June at LFA 41, he took a decision from Tyler Vogel to stay perfect at 7-0.
