Legacy Fighting Championships (LFC) 18 takes place tonight from the Arena Theatre in Houston, Texas, and airs live on AXS TV (formerly HDNet) at 10:00 p.m. ET.
A heavyweight title fight between champion Derrick Lewis and Ricky Shivers headlines the card. Lewis is fresh off a 1st-round TKO of Jared Rosholt at LFC 13 and is unbeaten (4 TKOs, 1 No Contest) since dropping a decision to Tony Johnson Jr. in Bellator. The only loss on "Icy Cold" Shivers' record in his last 6 outings is a unanimous decision defeat to Bellator's Emanuel Newton.
Vale Tudo legend and LFC lightweight champion Jorge Patino makes an appearance on the card, defending against former welterweight Derrick Krantz, while the undefeated Rafael De Freitas meets veteran Antonio Banuelos.
