LFA 134: Gafurov vs. Sousa takes set for June 10

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

LFA is going to have another biggest event in its history. LFA 134 takes place on Friday, June 10 at the Bell County Expo Center in Belton, Texas. This will be the fifth LFA event to be held in Centroplex, Texas. This will be the 22nd time the LFA has visited "The Lone Star State".

The main event will feature a bantamweight showdown between top Tajik potential Muin "Tajik" Gafurov and leading Brazilian potential Herbeth "Indio" Sousa. The full main card will be available worldwide at 9pm on UFC FIGHT PASS®. ET / 6 p.m. PT

"We are excited to bring a huge international confrontation in LFA 134 at the Centroplex of Texas," the Soares said. Muin Gafurov is the top MMA candidate from Tajikistan and has competed around the world. Herbeth Sousa is a BJJ black belt and one of Brazil's most successful bantamweight prospects. The man may have competed in the United States and promised to give our passionate fight fans a memorable showdown in the heart of Texas at the Bell County Expo Center.

Gafurov vs. Sousa Preview

Sousa (15-1) will make her LFA debut after gaining notoriety in another country with a deep appreciation of Martial arts games. In fact, he hails from the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, and has the status of a black belt in the BJJ, one of the most popular martial arts in his country.

After Sousa won the regional title for Future FC, he finally had the opportunity to make his international debut. The opportunity came in the form of a title fight in the United States, where he challenged CFFC Bantamweight Champion Alexander Keshtov. Sousa defeated the undefeated Russian champion to win a unanimous decision, but since he had lost weight the day before, he was not eligible for the title. Indio will now use this experience in LFA 134.

Gafurov (17-4), on the other hand, enters the LFA as a national hero in his native Tajikistan because he is one of the most decorated martial arts athletes. The 26-year-old's resume includes two combat sambo world championships, a FILA world grappling title, six contests for Asia's leading MMA Promotion One, and an eight-and-a-half-year professional MMA career that has seen him compete in 11 countries. ۔ . The last country he competed in was the United States debut in Dana White's Contender Series last September. Following the wrong outcome of a controversial partition decision, "Tajiks" will now become the first Tajiks to fight for the LFA.
