With the world being turned every crazy way by a global crisis, sports can provide a healing salve in an effort to stitch up our national wounds. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a rattler of the glades ready to inject his venom of red fire in hopes of giving Legacy Fighting Alliance a pick me up at 155 pounds. A professional mixed martial artist since September 2018 and representing Sanford MMA, Evan Elder owns an undefeated 4-0 record as a professional comprised of two knockouts, one submission, and one decision. Elder fought for Shamrock FC prior to making his promotional debut with Legacy Fighting Alliance in August 2020 at LFA 88 and has gone on to finish three of his four victories thus far during his tenure as a pro-MMA fighter. He is currently 1-0 under the banner of Legacy Fighting Alliance with the bulk of those wins as a professional mixed martial artist coming within the first round. He has made it on to the scorecards just once in his career.
In his MMA debut at Shamrock FC 309, he took on Antonio Atkins and defeated him via TKO in the first round. Elder submitted Tremiere Hollie via straight armbar in round one at Shamrock FC 316. Then at Shamrock FC 327, he defeated Orell Fisher via TKO in the first round to pick up his second knockout win as a professional
For his debut outing with Legacy Fighting Alliance at LFA 88, Elder defeated Keegan Greenich via unanimous decision. The win earned Elder the first decision victory of his professional career. He also picked up his first victory under the LFA banner in the process. At just 23 years young this rattlesnake can rise up out of the tall grass and strike without a moment’s warning to seek shelter from the storm that becomes mother nature with the flip of a coin!
