Jason Jackson vs. Junior Marques welterweight title fight headlines LFA 71 in Atlanta

Recommended Posts

LFA will visit the state of Georgia for the first time this summer, and the welterweight title will be up for grabs.

Jason Jackson (9-3), from Jamaica, is set to take on Brazil’s Junior Marques (9-1) for the vacant belt at LFA 71, the promotion recently announced. LFA 71 takes place July 12 at the Coca-Cola Roxy in Atlanta. The main card airs on AXS TV.

In addition, Robert Hale (6-4) meets Omar Morales (7-0) in a lightweight bout, and Ary Farias (7-2) takes on Devante Sewell (7-3) at bantamweight.

Jackson, who fought on Season 21 of “The Ultimate Fighter” in 2015, has won back-to-back fights. The Titan FC veteran lost to Kyle Stewart when he suffered an injury on a Dana White’s Contender Series fight. But he rebounded with a first-round TKO of Jordon Larson at Bellator 204 and a second-round submission win over Scott Futrell in his promotional debut at LFA 64 in April.

Marques has back-to-back wins, as well. Eight of his nine career victories are by stoppage, including a first-round TKO win in February in his native Brazil, where all his fights have taken place so far.

The LFA 71 lineup includes:

  • Jason Jackson vs. Junior Marques – for vacant welterweight title
  • Robert Hale vs. Omar Morales
  • Ary Farias vs. Devante Sewell
