Silveira made short work of Rafael
Viana atop the latest
Legacy Fighting Alliance event.
Silveira needed just 41 seconds to win the LFA
106 main event. After taking down Viana (6-2), Silveira was
able to sink in a rear-naked choke. After the submission win, the
light heavyweight prospect is now 5-0. The 28-year-old is looking
toward the vacant LFA light heavyweight title bout next and has his
eyes on the winner.
The co-main event saw Luiz
Antonio Lobo Gavinho and Terrance
McKinney battle at lightweight. McKinney (9-3) made short work
of his 37-year-old opponent after landing a beautiful head kick. A
few punches later on the ground and the
fight was waved off after just 17 seconds as Gavinho (10-5) was
unable to continue.
Estrada picked up a unanimous decision win over Tyler
Wilson. Estrada (11-6) was able to land damaging leg kicks in
the first two rounds. Wilson (6-4) handily won the third round but
it was too little, too late as Estrada took a trio of 29-28
The grappling of Cheyden
Leialoha proved to be the difference in his 148-pound
catchweight bout against Edwin
Chavez. Leialoha (8-2) dominated the fight on the ground and
Chavez (4-1) had little to offer. After three rounds of action,
Leialoha took a unanimous decision with scorecards of 30-26, 30-27
In heavyweight action, Trevor
Wallace suffered the first loss of his career against Shane
Grant. “Bubba” was stunned early, but Wallace (4-1) wasn’t able
to put him away. Grant (8-6) battled back into the bout and
managed to damage Wallace with punches after stuffing a takedown
attempt. The fight was waved off just 1:36 into Round 1.
In the opening bout, bantamweight prospect William
Elliott looked like he was on his way to a dominating
performance over Mando
Gutierrez. However, Gutierrez (5-1) persevered after being
rocked early and
sunk in a rear-naked choke with just seconds left in the round.
Elliott (3-2) tapped out at the 4:55 mark of Round 1.
