Legend Fighting Championship has been relatively quiet lately, but it looks like they're planning to make a splash with their next event being a milestone of sorts. On August 24, they will be heading back to their home base of Hong Kong and will be hosting their 10th event.

The fight card hasn't been officially announced, but sources within the promotion have informed BloodyElbow.com that no less than three championship belts will be on the line at Legend FC 10.

In what will likely be the headliner of the event, Bae Myung Ho, a fashion model and one of the best fighters out of Korea, will be looking to extend his win-streak and defend his welterweight title yet again. 'The Wolverine', who is a perfect 5-0 with the promotion, will be putting his belt on the line against Chinese fighter, Wang Sai.

The featherweight title will also be at stake when Yusuke Kawanago makes his first defense against talented Aussie, Rob Lisita. As for the third title bout on the card, popular Korean fighter, "Hungry" Hae Jun Yang, will take on China's Liu Wenbo for the vacant middleweight strap.

Also on the card, a battle between talented light heavyweight prospects in Australia's Chris Lokteff, and New Zealand's Brandon Ropati, who both are both undefeated at 7-0 and 6-0 respectively.
