Legacy Fighting Alliance just keeps bringing the heat. Last weekend, they gave us a stanky leg knock out and a brutal hematoma-conjuring elbow. Tonight, we were educated with a lesson in persistence by Brandon Royvall. We haven't sat down and counted all of these submission attempts yet, but after a ton of them he finally made Rakan Adwan tap to a sick armbar.

That's ground work that even the most impatient crowd could never heckle. What a great message to take from this fight; If you fail, try, try, and try again. And again. Ok, one more time. You almost got it. The way Royval scissored Adwan's head with his feet at the end was also a nice touch. He even tried to get his teammate on a card in his post-fight speech!
