Alex wins Fight of the Night in Legend FC 4

Last Thursday 27 January, Legacy's Alex Niu made his debut appearance for the growing Legend Fighting Championships promotion in Hong Kong. The event was broadcast around the world, and it was the first ever Chinese MMA event to be broadcast on American pay per view.

Alex's bout against Chinese sanda fighter Wang Sai was the opening fight on the pay-per-view card, and had the distinction of being awarded Fight of the Night after the event. In a tough 3 round fight, Alex used his boxing skills well. Alex got the better of the striking exchanges, landing some ferocious leg kicks and a good solid elbow. He also did well on the ground, with a nice arm bar attempt in the first round and a mount at the end of the second round. After three hard rounds, Alex won a unanimous decision, getting his Legend FC career off to a great start.

Many thanks to Marcus, who was in Alex's corner, for the update and the details. And a big shout out to Vaughn 'Blud' Anderson, who was commentating at the event.
