LFC 52 rolled into the Golden Nugget in Lake Charles, LA and it was a show for the ages! From the opening bell, the action was fast and furious. The judges were not needed for any of the main card fights as every one reached a finish before the final bell! Here is recap of the stellar card.
125 Interim Title- Matt Schnell vs Klayton Mai
The last time Mai and Schnell faced off, Klayton was able to secure a fight-ending guillotine in the second round. This time with the title on the line, it was Schnell who was able to control the pace of the fight. After dropping Klayton with a flurry, Matt was able to lock in the fight-ending armbar to secure the win and the lay claim to the interim championship belt.

Ryan Spann vs Aaron Davis
Ryan Spann came out looking to establish his range against Davis and that’s exactly what he did. After stunning Davis with a head kick, Spann was able to lock up the standing guillotine which left Davis unconscious on the mat.

Allen came out strong and dropped Giles with a quick combo. Giles was able to weather the storm and use his smoothing ground game to pound on Allen until sinking in the fight-ending rear-naked choke.

Irwin Rivera vs Jose Ceja
I’m not completely sure I can justify this fight in words alone. Rivera and Ceja had to be separated at weigh ins and when the bell rang, they wasted no time in getting after it. Ceja looked to establish his jab, but was having a hard time dealing with the power of Rivera. Over and over it seemed that Ceja was on the verge of being stopped, only to simply stand back up and persevere. Late in the fight, Rivera landed a beautifully timed flying knee and celebrated his “walk off” KO, only to look over his shoulder and see that Ceja had risen again like he was imitating The Undertaker. With time running out in the 3rd round, Rivera was able to lock in the fight-ending choke.
