Legacy Fighting Championship 11: Drysdale Draws Ike Villanueva, Macaco Drops To 155

via allelbows.com

Some more news from Houston-based Legacy Fighting Championship was released today. After last week's announcement about the signing of Robert Drysdale, there were some questions regarding who would be his first opponent on May 11. Bloody Elbow learned from Legacy Promoter Mick Maynard that Drysdale would be facing off with Ike Villanueva (8-6). This will be Robert Drysdale's first fight in the promotion and will take place in the light heavyweight division.

Also on tap for the card is Brazilian vale tudo legend Jorge "Macaco" Patino making his lightweight debut against Jesus Rivera. Macaco won the vacant welterweight belt at Legacy 8 with a split decision victory over Pete Spratt. The 38 year old Patino defended his belt later in 2011 at Legacy 9 against Mike Bronzoulis. The Macaco/Rivera fight will be for the vacant lightweight belt which would make Patino the champion at both light and welterweight.

Legacy Fighting Championship 11 is on May 11 at the Houston Arena Theater.
