LAS VEGAS, Nevada — LFA CEO Ed Soares announced that the promotion will return to Southern California in August. LFA 190 will feature a flyweight title unification fight between the top two flyweight prospects in MMA that are currently competing outside of the UFC. LFA 190 will be the nineteenth LFA event to take place in the Golden State.

LFA 190, presented by Monster Energy, takes place Friday, August 23rd at The Commerce Casino & Hotel in Commerce, California, which is located in southeast Los Angeles County. The main event will feature a flyweight title unification bout when champion Eduardo Chapolin faces interim champion Igor Siqueira. The entire main card will be available worldwide on UFC FIGHT PASS® at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

“We are excited to bring our third-ever title unification fight to Southern California at LFA 190,” stated Soares. “The main event will see the third title unification bout in LFA history when LFA flyweight champion Eduardo Chapolin battles LFA interim flyweight champion Igor Siqueira. These are the top two flyweights in the world currently fighting outside the UFC and they hail from opposite ends of Brazil. Chapolin is from the southeast of Brazil and Siqueira is from the northeast of Brazil, which will create an electric atmosphere on the neutral battleground in Southern California. They both captured their titles with spectacular knockouts and we expect an explosive showdown between these two proud champions!”

Tickets for LFA 190: Chapolin vs. Siqueira will be available for purchase Friday, July 5th at 10:00 a.m. PT available for through LFATIX.com.

Chapolin (12-2) grew up in Buritama, São Paulo, Brazil. This is just across the Tietê River from Birigui in the northwest area of the state of São Paulo. Birigui is the hometown of UFC star and LFA great Tabatha “Baby Shark” Ricci, who is Chapolin’s longtime friend and training partner. After making his LFA debut in Brazil in the summer of 2022, Chapolin moved to the United States to rejoin Ricci stateside, where they now train together in Ventura, California. This led to his American-soil debut, where he defeated fellow Brazilian fighter Leandro Soares at LFA 165. The 28-year-old is a veteran of nearly 70 kickboxing fights and won kickboxing titles in Brazil and Japan. This world-class striking pedigree was on full display when he knocked out LFA flyweight champion Cody Davis to capture the title at LFA 172. He now looks to solidify his throne with his first title defense.

Siqueira (10-2) is a man that lives by the Latin aphorism “carpe diem”. The 30-year-old native of Moju, Pará, Brazil was set to headline LFA 180 in Kentucky at the end of March, when his opponent Kevin Fernandez withdrew with an injury on the week of the fight. As fate would have it, Jordan Harris also withdrew from his title fight taking place the following week at LFA 181. Siqueira was already on his flight stateside, when this happened, and immediately agreed to step in for Harris and fight for the interim title a week later. However, his stay in Minnesota was brief, as he knocked out top undefeated prospect Eimar Hernandez in 67-seconds to capture the interim title. That opportunity became available when Chapolin was injured and withdrew from his first title defense against Hernandez. Once his original replacement Harris also withdrew, Siqueira “seized the day”.
