LAS VEGAS – LFA president Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into event production agreements with three of the promotion's top casino partners.
"The LFA team will be busy as we return for events in Oklahoma, New York and North Dakota all in the span of three weeks" said Bean, who handles venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.
"We will kick things off by heading back to the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort in Shawnee, Oklahoma on Friday, August 5," Bean stated.
"The Grand was a great partner to the LFA during the pandemic, allowing us to set up a residency inside the Grand Event Center. During the second quarter of last year, we were able to host eight events, but those events were limited to very small groups of socially distanced casino guests. I am looking forward to a fully ticketed event and allowing the area fans back to have a true LFA experience."
Krystle Ross, Director of Sales and Catering, added:
"The Grand Casino Hotel and Resort is very excited to have the opportunity to work with Legacy Fighting Alliance again. The LFA team have set the standard for mixed martial art events, and we are excited to grow our relationship with them. It will be great to allow fans back for an exciting night of MMA on August 5."
Tickets for LFA 138 will go on sale Wednesday, June 29 at 10 a.m. CT at LFATIX.com.
LFA 138 will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass.
"After a short two-week break, the LFA then heads east for a return to Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino," Bean continued. "The LFA had their inaugural event there this past February. It was an amazing show featuring some truly amazing fights, in a great venue packed with a sold-out crowd. We set the bar pretty high that night. You couldn't ask for a more accommodating and professional events team, and I look forward to working with them to raise the bar even higher on August 19."
Christian Printup, Sr. Executive Director of Entertainment and Special Events added:
“We’re thrilled to host another action packed night of Legacy Fighting Alliance MMA at Seneca Niagara Resort and Casino this summer. The last event this past February absolutely left our guests wanting more LFA, and we're very excited to have them back with some of the best up-and-coming MMA talent in the world on display.”

LFA 139 will be broadcast live at 9 p.m. ET on UFC Fight Pass.
"The following week, we will head west for our second event at 4 Bears Casino and Lodge in New Town, North Dakota," Bean concluded. "We weren't given any favors our first time there, with an ice storm threatening to cancel the event at any minute. Nevertheless, the LFA and 4 Bears teams pulled together and were able to produce one of the best events the region has ever seen. The 4 Bears Event center is state-of-the-art and s great place to watch combat sports. The local fans have proven they show up ready to have a good time, and we have a great event in store for them on August 26."
“4 Bears Casino and Lodge is excited to host our second LFA event this August," added Pat Packineau, Chief Operating Officer, 4 Bears Casino and Lodge. "Despite some bad weather, our first LFA event last April was a success. We are looking forward to a big crowd to showcase exciting fights, amazing production and a great time.”
