Since the early days of the promotion, Legacy Fighting Alliance has planted themselves on firm ground to lead the charge in the fight to equal the playing field for the next generation of female talents. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a Brazilian wolf ready to issue a dire howl of warning at LFA 105 on April 23. A professional mixed martial artist since December 2013 and representing Black House MMA, Tabatha Ricci holds an unbeaten 4-0 professional record comprised of two submissions and two decisions. Ricci is currently 2-0 under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance and has earned a finish in two out of her four victories with two first-round finishes in her tenure as a pro-MMA fighter so far. She has gone to the scorecards twice during her pro career, winning via decision across the board in both instances in the span of three rounds over a duration of 15 minutes. Both of Ricci’s finishes during her time in the professional ranks have come before the conclusion of the opening round.
In her MMA debut, she submitted Danielle Cunha in the first round via armbar. Ricci defeated Grazelle Ricotta at Brazilian Fighting Championship 4 via a unanimous decision. Then in her promotional debut with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 90, she defeated Kelsey Arnesen via a unanimous decision. Ricci tapped out Vanessa Grimes via armbar in the first round in her second outing with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 98. The victory earned Ricci the second submission win of her professional career. She also picked up back-to-back wins under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance in the process.
For her third appearance with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 105 on April 23, she will face Shawna Ormsby in an affair at strawweight. Other fighters that are set to be featured on LFA 105 include former title challenger Jake Childers and undefeated welterweight prospect Mark Martin. Good luck Tabatha!
