LFA 142 Results – Amorim vs. Nichols


Legacy Fighting Alliance returns to the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minnesota to present LFA 142: Amorim vs. Nichols. After a much smaller event last week, the LFA will have a lot more going on, including a strawweight title fight between two of the toughest women on the regional scene. Jaqueline Amorim (5-0) puts her belt and her undefeated title on the line to face a very experienced striker in Ashley Nichols (4-3).

After beating all of her opponents in just two minutes or less, Jaqueline “Jacque” Amorim might be the most talented strawweight to ever win an LFA Championship. With fighters like Lupita Godinez, Vanessa Demopoulos, and Piera Rodriguez holding the belt, she’s in great company and has a very clear path to the UFC. Tonight, however, she faces a talented Ashley Nichols who should be far tougher than anyone she’s faced in the cage so far. Nichols began her career in 2013 and has since dabbled in several combat sports, including a stint as a GLORY kickboxer. Despite his MMA record, Nichols is a tough match for anyone with two of his losses coming to former UFC fighters Randa Markos and Mallory Martin. With valuable experience against big show fighters, Nichols is ready to show Amorim what it takes to compete at the next level.

Thomas Peterson (5-1) is back as the co-main event after a very tough loss to Waldo Cortés-Acosta earlier this year. The former LFA heavyweight champion has finished in the first round five times and looked pretty untouchable until this loss. After months of thinking and refining his game, Peterson is looking to get back on track and remind everyone just how talented he is. After a successful amateur run where he went 9-1, Kory Moegenburg (2-3) hasn’t had the best of luck since turning pro. One of his losses was his professional debut against Brendan Allen where he finished in the first round. Now at heavyweight, Moegenburg has just completed his first round and is ready to shock the world on his LFA debut.

LFA have plenty of matches to watch throughout this busy event. Sean McPadden (5-1) and Michel Cyr (4-0) creates an intense bantamweight clash between two deadly finishers who have never seen the scorecards in their professional careers. Another BJJ star in Giovanna Canuto (3-0) faces her toughest test in MMA when she fights Contender Series veteran Dana White Jamie Colleen (5-3). There is also a preliminary fight between Dan Moriarty (2-0) and Oscar Jurado Sanchez (2-0) as both fighters look to maintain their unbeaten streak and secure another finish.

MMA Sucka will have live coverage for LFA 142: Amorim vs. Nichols during its live stream UFC Battle Pass at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT
