UFC veteran Leonard Garcia was released from the promotion, but it didn’t take him long to find a new home according to the Legacy Fighting Championship Twitter account:
It's official! Leonard Garcia v. Rey Trujillo July 19th at Legacy FC 21 on Houston. Tickets at http://t.co/kJrcUzRa29
— Legacy FC (@legacyfighting) May 11, 2013
Garcia (15-11-1) lost his last five fights inside the UFC, including a lackluster unanimous decision loss against Cody McKenzie at UFC 159 in April.
Garcia has arguably lost his last seven with the only win being a terrible judges decision where Garcia was gifted a split decision win against Nam Phan. Phan later avenged the decision 10 months later.
Trujillo (14-10) is riding a two fight winning streak with both wins coming in the Legacy FC promotion.
