Brendan Allen vs. Larry Crowe headlines LFA 43 in Beaumont, Texas

Two former title challengers will meet in next month’s LFA 43 main event.

Officials today announced former LFA title challenger Brendan Allen (8-3) and ex-Legacy FC title challenger Larry Crowe (10-6) are slated for the middleweight headliner.

LFA 43 takes place June 22 at Beaumont Civic Center in Beaumont, and it marks the organization’s debut in the southeast Texas city. The main card airs on AXS TV.

Allen, a 22-year-old Louisianan and current Roufusport fighter, is 1-2 in his past three fights, though the defeats – both via decision – came to now-UFC fighter Eryk Anders and Anthony Hernandez in fights for the vacant LFA middleweight bout. Outside of those two title losses, he’s 8-1 with eight stoppages.

There, he came up short in title fights with Bubba Bush and Leo Leites, but he recently made a successful LFA debut and scored a split-decision win over Bilal Williams.
