LFA 128 Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed martial arts returns to the Sanford Pentagon on April 8 with a card from Legacy Fighting Alliance. The main card will air worldwide on UFC FIGHT PASS® at 8 p.m. CT.
The complete card will be announced later. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketmaster.com and the Pentagon Box Office. Ticket options start at $20, and among them is a VIP pre-show package at Blue Rock Bar & Grill. This option includes heavy appetizers, unlimited draft beer or house wine, a ticket and separate bartenders and servers.
Three fighters with local ties have been confirmed for LFA 128, including Bailey Schoenfelder (Huron, S.D.), Bryce Meredith (Cheyenne, Wyo.) and Mitch McKee (St. Michael, Minn.). All three are former NCAA Division I athletes. Schoenfelder and Meredith have fought at Pentagon before while McKee is making his venue debut.
“The variety of sports we are able to showcase at the Sanford Sports Complex is something we take great pride in, and it always adds energy to the building when athletes with local ties are competing,” said Steve Young, president of Sanford Sports. “The MMA community has embraced these events when they come to the Pentagon, and we look forward to putting on a first-class experience for the fans and the athletes.”
The Sanford Pentagon has hosted various mixed martial arts events since 2014, including Bellator 204 in August 2018, Bellator 265 in August 2021 and multiple RFA/LFA cards. More than a dozen fighters who have competed at the Pentagon have gone on to fight for Bellator or UFC.
In 2017, RFA and Legacy FC merged to form LFA, the premier developmental organization in Mixed Martial Arts. The combined forces of LFA launched the careers of over 180 athletes that have reached the pinnacle of MMA by competing in the UFC. In 2018, the promotion joined the Imperial Family Companies group (formerly London Trust Media). In 2019, the promotion announced a broadcast partnership with UFC FIGHT PASS®.
