LFA and CES MMA will continue on AXS TV in 2018, the cable network announced Thursday.
In addition, AXS TV Fights’ 2018 campaign will kick off Jan. 12 with LFA 30. That event, according to a release from AXS TV, makes the promotion the fastest in MMA history to reach 30 events. LFA started in January of this year following the merger of Legacy FC and RFA.
Ron Kruck will handle play-by-play duties in 2018 for AXS TV Fights events alongside commentator Pat Miletich. THey’ll be joined by cagedside nad backstage reporter Phoenix Carnevale.
LFA 30 will take place at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa, Calif. In the main event, welterweights Curtis Millender (13-3) and Nick Barnes (12-2) will clash. After that, CES MMA will return on Feb. 2 for its fifth year of events on AXS TV.
“For over 15 years, we have built our network to be the place for fighters to get discovered in the world of MMA, and with 2018’s stacked schedule, the tradition is set to continue,” AXS TV Fights CEO Andrew Simon stated. “Ron Kruck has been an integral part of our team from the beginning and it is only fitting he will call our 400th event alongside one of MMA’s greatest legends, Pat Miletich.”
