Robert Drysdale Signs With Legacy FC, First Fight May 11

via www.drinkeq.com

In some huge news from the American regional MMA scene, famed grappler Robert Drysdale has chosen to sign with Houston-based Legacy Fighting Championship as his new home for MMA. Drysdale is one of the most recognizable names in grappling circles, but has remained a relative unknown to MMA fans because of his lack of exposure.

He was expected to be a cast member of The Ultimate Fighter but the required medicals revealed that Drysdale was living with a brain aneurysm.Once he resolved this incredibly dangerous medical issue, he started his professional MMA career in the Canadian-based AFC, where he submitted three straight opponents in just over five minutes, collectively.

Last night, Bloody Elbow learned from Legacy FC that Drysdale had signed a three-fight contract and is set to make his debut for the promotion on May 11th at the Houston Arena Theater in Houston, Texas. He currently is without an opponent. This is a major signing for a promotion that is trying to build a reputation as the top fight league in Texas. Drysdale adds legitimacy due to his grappling credentials which should increase not just the visibility but also the marketability of the overall Legacy product.

Legacy Fighting Championship airs on HDNet. Their next show is February 24th at the Houston Arena Theater. The card features Gerald Harris in a middleweight fight against Artenas Lewis and Chidi Njokuani making his Legacy debut against Jon Harris.
