Andrea “KGB” Lee is fresh off Invicta FC 21 and set to bounce right back into the cage to fight for the inaugural LFA title at LFA 4.
Apparently Saturday night didn’t quench Lee’s thirst for the cage. The flyweight wasted little time booking her next fight. Lee is now set to compete for the inaugural LFA flyweight title – for the first time since the merger of Legacy Fighting Championship and Resurrection Fighting Alliance – against Heather Bassett at LFA 4. The winner will become the first women’s flyweight champion in the new promotions history.
Lee returned to the cage following her suspension to take on Jenny Liou at Invicta 21. She was returning to the cage following a loss to Sarah D’Alelio. Lee looked sharp in her return overwhelming Liou with devastating strikes and dispatching of her in just over a minute. Following her performance against Liou and with a victory at LFA 4 against Bassett, one has to believe an Invicta flyweight title shot is right around the corner.
Bassett is riding a wave of confidence coming into the fight. She has won three of her last four and is coming off back-to-back TKO victories with King of the Cage. This is a huge opportunity for Bassett not only to win a title, but pick up a victory over one of the brightest prospects in MMA and may even land her on the Invicta roster. It at the very least would increase her stock.
LFA 4 is set to go down at Horseshoe Bossier City Hotel and Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana on February 17. The card will be headlined by Kevin Aguilar and Raoni Barcelos who will be competing for the inaugural featherweight championship.
