A trio of UFC veterans will star at Legacy FC 29 on March 21st in Oklahoma. The always exciting Leonard Garcia (18-11-1) seems to have had a career resurgence since joining the promotion less than a year ago. In that time his has won three straight and captured the featherweight title with a first round KO win over Kevin Aguilar in December.
Previously Garcia was on a 1-6 skid in the WEC and UFC over the course of three years with many of them fights being known as ‘wars’ and earning him numerous ‘FOTN’ awards. The 34-year-old will defend his title against Shane Howell (13-7) who is currently 9-1 in his past ten outings.
In the co-main event we will see another former UFC fighter Paul Buentello (33-15). The 40-year-old, much like Garcia, has found a new lease in life for MMA and is currently on a four-fight-win-streak including a brutal KO win over James McSweeney in his Legacy debut last August. The former UFC heavyweight title contender now fights at light-heavyweight and will be facing Myron Dennis (9-2) for the vacant Legacy FC light-heavyweight title. Dennis
The card also feature the return of TUF season 12 winner Jonathan Brookins (13-6). The 28-year-old retired from MMA following a defeat to Dustin Poirier in December 2012 and he decided to move to India. Just over a year has passed and now the laid-back fighter is looking to get back into the game and faces another grappler in Cody Fuller (10-7).
