LFA 100 videos, results: Steven Nguyen faceplants opponent, Ben Henderson’s wife wins amateur debut

    Legacy Fighting Alliance reached its 100th show since the merger between Legacy FC and RFA in 2016, and Steven Nguyen celebrated it with a brutal knockout on the main card of Friday night’s show in Dallas, TX.

    Nguyen (7-1) was finally back in a cage since the first loss of his career, a third-round knockout at Dana White’s Contender Series in July 2019, battling Jorge Juarez in a featherweight contest. Nguyen folded his opponent with a brutal right hand 30 seconds into the match, landing a follow-up hammerfist that landed on the shoulder.

    LFA 100 was headlined by Victor Altamira (9-1) versus short-notice replacement Nate Smith for the vacant flyweight title, with Altamira taking home the gold via unanimous decision victory. The 30-year-old Mexican fighter now holds a perfect 9-0 record inside the LFA cage.

    The co-main event also featured flyweight talents, and Charles Johnson (8-2) impressed. Having fought in six professional boxing matches since his past MMA bout in Sept. 2018, a 1-5 run in the squared circle, Johnson showed off his grappling skills to make previously undefeated Karlee Pangilinan submit to an anaconda choke in the second stanza.

    Ben Henderson’s wife Maria Henderson was also victorious Friday night. Making her amateur MMA debut just months after giving birth, the wife of former UFC champion defeated Amanda Mitchell via unanimous decision in a strawweight contest.
