LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA President Sven Bean announced today that the LFA has entered into two event production agreements in October of 2023.
“The LFA team will produce two events in two exciting markets in October,” said Bean, who handles venue booking and scheduling for the LFA.
“We will kick things off by returning to the The Factory In Deep Ellum in Dallas, Texas on Friday, October 6th,” stated Bean.
“It will be a nice homecoming of sorts, heading back to where it all started and the birthplace of the LFA. It’s also the final stop on our 2023 Texas Tour, which has been a huge success so far. There is no other venue quite like the “Factory”. I’m a huge music and concert fan, and the vibe inside the venue is more like going to a concert than a fight. I look forward to working with their event team to produce another over the top event for the Texas fans.”
Eric Bradford, COO of The Factory in Deep Ellum echoed:
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring professional Mixed Martial Arts back to The Factory in Deep Ellum, the birthplace of the LFA. Our one of a kind venue has enjoyed our partnership with LFA, producing world class events for the past 6 years. The local fans know they are attending something special at an LFA event. We look forward to more history in the making on October 27th.”
Tickets for LFA 169 are on sale NOW at TheFactoryInDeepEllum.com.
LFA 169 will be broadcast live at 6PM PST/9PM EST on UFC FIGHT PASS.
“Then three weeks later, the LFA will return to the Dobson Arena in Vail, Colorado on Friday, October 27th,” stated Bean.
“Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, Vail has always been a special place for me. It’s known for being an International destination, with a rich history of hosting world class sporting events. I am really proud to add the LFA series to that list. I have enjoyed working with the Town Of Vail Committee for Special Events over the years. I am extremely grateful for their continued support of our brand and our athletes. Each year we try to improve as a production and I’m really excited for the show we will bring to the fans in October.”
Town Of Vail Special Event Coordinator Jeremy Gross added:
“The Town of Vail has hosted the Legacy Fighting Alliance for many years now. It’s become somewhat of a tradition in town. The community now anticipates this unique event offering. The production of the event each year has left our team impressed. We are excited to welcome them back on October 27th.”
Tickets for LFA 170 will go on sale Friday, August 14th at 10:00 am MT at LFATIX.com.
LFA 169 will be broadcast live at 7PM PST/10PM EST on UFC FIGHT PASS.
