LFA 155 took place Friday, March 24 at the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino in Niagara Falls, New York, with an interim bantamweight title fight closing out the show.

The nine-fight card was shaken up during fight week, as the original co-main event of Solomon Renfro vs. Gláucio Eliziário was removed from the line-up after Renfro withdrew due to an undisclosed illness.

That still left the headliner in place, as Rafael Do Nascimento and  Jerrell “Thunderkat” Hodge threw down with interim 135lb gold up for grabs. Do Nasicmento had won four straight, including his first two fights under the LFA banner, heading into the night, while Hodge was returning to MMA after taking over a year off to further his boxing career.

Also fighting on the LFA 155 main card, light heavyweight Ben “Big Tuna” Parrish, who had gone 1-1 under the Bellator MMA banner and derailed Jon Jones’ training partner Christian Edwards before dropping a fight to another blue chip prospect in Sullivan Cauley.

LFA 155 goes down Friday, March 24, 2023 with the event’s main card airing on UFC Fight Pass starting at 9PM ET. Full results from the event can be found below.
