On Friday, June 16, 2023 the Legacy Fighting Allience returned to action, with LFA 160 going down at the Owensboro Sportscenter in Owensboro, Kentucky.
Topping the card were a pair of title fights. In the co-main event, an interim middleweight title was on the line when Dylan Budka faced off against Russia’s Azamat Bekoev. Both fighters entered the night on solid win streaks, Budka with five straight victories to Bekoev’s three.
In the LFA 160 main event, meanwhile, the vacant bantamweight championship was up for grabs between John Sweeney and vs. Allan Begosso. Brazil’s Begosso was coming off a Contender Series loss to Farid Basharat, while Sweeney was winner of six straight fights.
Also fighting Friday, Aline Pereira, sister of former UFC middleweight champ Alex Pereira, was still looking for her first win.
