This Friday night brings with it some live mixed martial arts action and a debuting promotion on UFC Fight Pass.
For the first time in two months, Legacy Fighting Alliance will be live this weekend—and for the first time ever—Legacy Fighting Alliance will be live on UFC Fight Pass.
The LFA’s Fight Pass debut will be Friday’s LFA 78 card at 9 p.m. EST, 8 p.m. CST, 6 p.m. PST from Belton, TX’s Bell County Events Center.

Highlighting LFA 78 this Friday is a three-round, non-title main event in the LFA’s Bantamweight division.

Both contenders have gone 4-1 in their last five fights and both enter this contest on a two-fight winning streak.
Yanez won last time out by first-round knockout in Fury FC 33 vs. Michael Rodriguez on June 29.
In the other corner, Estrada’s last win occurred in LFA 73 on AXS TV vs. Cody Freeman on Aug. 2 by majority decision.
