Legend Fighting Championship will return to the prestigious MGM Theater of MGM Cotai in Macau on December 28, 2019 for “Legend FC 14.” In line with its MGM partnership, the Hong Kong-based mixed martial arts organization will provide a unique night of sports and entertainment that fans have come to expect.
“The dynamic nature of MGM Theater gives us the canvas to display Chinese mixed martial arts against the backdrop of immersive LED content, interactive in-venue entertainment and a VIP experience that is unlike any other in the industry,” Legend FC chairman Matthew Kwok. “Our partners at MGM bring a knowledge and experience in the entertainment world that matches perfectly with our expertise in the world of sports, broadcast and great competition.”
“Legend FC 14″ will see the return of its one-night Sanda tournament. The fight card will feature competitions under both modified Sanda rules and MMA.
“Our roster is full of extremely talented athletes and that talent will be on full display come 28 December,” Legend FC director of competition Vaughn Anderson said. “A lot of our former athletes have gone on to achieve great things in MMA around the world and we will continue to show how great Chinese MMA is.”
One such success story is former Legend FC athlete Li Jingliang. Currently competing as a welterweight contender in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, he said the history of Sanda in Chinese MMA runs deep.
“Most athletes that have risen through the ranks in Chinese martial arts have trained and competed in Sanda, which is similar to my background,” Li said. “It is great to see Sanda as a sport shown on the global stage. ‘Legend FC 14’ will no doubt be a great event.”
