Jay Hieron

It has emerged today that Legacy Fighting Championship newcomer and MMA vet Jay Hieron (22-5) will face Mike Bronzoulis (13-5-1) in a welterweight matchup at Legacy FC 12 in July.

The fight was originally reported on MMAjunkie.com who had the fight confirmed to them by Legacy FC promoter Mick Maynard.

Legacy Fighting Championships 12 will take place on July 13th at Houston’s Arena Theater, the main card for the event will air on HDnet.

Jay Hieron last competed in October 2011 at Bellator 56 taking on welterweight champion Ben Askren, unfortunately losing  the fight via split decision ending a 10 fight winning streak. The former IFL champ will now look to bounce back from the loss to Askren with a victory in his LFC debut.

Mike Bronzoulis enters this fight coming off back-to-back loses in the LFC against Jorge Patino and Gerald Harris. Prior to those losses, he had a two fight spell in Strikeforce going (1-1) with a bounce back TKO victory over Chad Leonhardt after dropping a decision to Todd Moore at the “Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum” event in June 2011. A win over Hieron would be great for Mike who will now look to get himself back in the winning column.
