There are two big MMA events this weekend and everything will be starting off on Friday Night with Legacy Fighting Championships 53. The event will be headlined by a welterweight division fight as Antonio Trocoli faces UFC veteran Dhiego Lima. Also, Dave Vitkay faces Cody Wiilson and six other top MMA prospects will be stepping into the Legacy FC cage.

Main Card

Main Event

Legacy FC Welterweight Division Fight

Antonio “Malvado” Trocoli (9-1-0) vs. Dhiego Lima (10-4-0)

Trocoli is currently winless in Legacy FC competition, dropping a fight to UFC veteran Jacob Volkmann by decision at Legacy FC 51. Lima will be competing for the first time since his UFC release, which came after a loss to Jingliang Li at UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Faber. Trocoli had been undefeated before that loss to Volkmann, having won nine straight fights prior to the defeat. Lima has not won a fight in nearly two years and he only did win one of four fights during his time in the UFC. Lima will want to get the fight to the ground quickly, but that will play into Trocoli’s game and Trocoli submits him in the second.

Co-Main Event

Legacy FC Middleweight Division Fight

Cody Wilson (9-1-0) vs. Dave “The A-Town Ogre” Vitkay (16-12-1)

Wilson will enter this fight riding a nine fight winning streak and this fight will be marking his Legacy FC debut. Vitkay is currently undefeated in Legacy FC competition, defeating both Wesley Barnes and Tommy Jones. The lone loss in Wilson’s career came in 2011, where he was defeated by Joseph Cornerolli by decision. Vitkay also competed three times in Bellator MMA, where he holds a win over Strikeforce veteran Keith Berry. Wilson is a capable fighter, but Vitkay has been on an amazing roll in the last few years, Vitkay submits Wilson in the third round.

Legacy FC Bantamweight Division Fight

CJ Hamilton (5-4-0) vs. Jacob Hebeisen (7-3-0)

Hamilton is currently undefeated in Legacy FC competition, having defeated Brantley Furr at Legacy FC 47. Hebeisen will be making his Legacy FC debut in this fight and he once challenged for the Warfare MMA Bantamweight Title. Hamilton will want to use his striking to get the win, but Hebeisen will ground and submit Hamilton in the first round.

Legacy FC Welterweight Division Fight

Amir Dadovic (2-2-0) vs. Adam Dehart (5-5-0)

Dadovic is currently winless in Legacy FC competition, having dropped a fight to Wesley Barnes at Legacy FC 40. Dehart will be making his Legacy FC debut in this fight and he is a veteran of the Wild Bills Fight Night promotion. This is a must win situation for both competitors, but it will be Dehart grinding out a decision with his wrestling game.

Legacy FC Welterweight Division Fight

Wesley Golden (4-5-0) vs. Chazz “The Hybrid” Walton (3-0-0)

Golden will enter the fight riding a four fight winning streak and he has not earned a victory in nearly five full years. Walton has already competed once in Legacy FC and all three of his wins as a pro came via first round finishes. Golden is merely a body for Walton to beat up, Walton does so by finishing him with strikes in the first round.
