LFA announces May schedule of events in Arizona and Brazil

LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA President Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into two event production agreements in April of 2023.

“The LFA team will return to both Arizona and Brazil to produce back to back events in May.” said Bean, who handles venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.

“We will kick things off by heading back to the Gila River Resort and Casino – Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Arizona on Friday May 19th” stated Bean.

“We will once again bring the Octagon to the stage inside The Showroom at Wild Horse Pass. The world class venue, casino, and hotel all bring an upscale feel to the event, making it a ‘see and be seen’ type of show. The intimate setting puts every seat up close and personal, and part of the action. We started our 2023 season with a sold out show at this great venue, and I’m looking forward to returning to the nicest casino resort in the Phoenix area, another sell out crowd, and an amazing night of fights in May!”


Gila River Corporate Director of Entertainment Anastasia Palmer Johnson added:

“We are so excited to welcome the return of the LFA to The Showroom at Wildhorse Pass. In January, the LFA team proved to be of the highest level. They brought professional production, athleticism, showmanship and drama all in one night! We are thrilled to be able to offer such an exciting and dynamic event to our resort guests and patrons again in May!”

Tickets for LFA 158 go on sale Monday April 3rd at 10:00 AM PST through Ticketmaster.com.


LFA 158 will be broadcast live at 7PM PST/10PM EST on UFC FIGHT PASS.



“The following week, the LFA returns to Brazil for a special Saturday night engagement at the CIDE Casa Branca Sports Complex in Caraguatauba, São Paulo, Brazil.


“We will continue to rely on our incredible LFA Brazil team as we return to Caraguatatuba, São Paulo, Brazil. Rafael Feijao continues to lead the charge in South America and again has formed a working relationship with Mayor Aguilar Junior. I’m personally excited to see the newly completed CIDE Casa Branca and see the LFA Octagon front and center on the international stage.”


LFA V.P. of South America, Rafael Feijao added:

“I am excited for the LFA to return to Caraguatatuba in May. We have reinforced our relationship with Mayor Aguilar Junior. With his support, we have been able to put together a plan for an amazing series of events in the beautiful city. Just like with previous events in Brazil, we will continues our tradition of giving back to the community. We will be accepting donations of food in exchange for tickets to the event. The food will then be distributed to underprivileged families in the area. I look forward to the next step of growth for LFA Brazil in May!”
