LFA 106:

Legacy Fighting Alliance ends its April residency in Oklahoma this Friday night with LFA 106, an eight-fight card from Shawnee, OK and the Grand Hotel Casino and Resort, one week removed from a 5-of-8 stoppage rate (62.5 percent), making for a 61.2 percent stoppage rate (46-of-74) for the promotion this year.

LFA 106 begins with the Facebook undercard at 8 p.m. ET, 5 p.m. PT, followed at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT on Fight Pass with the main card.

Highlighting LFA 106 on Friday night is a nontitle main event at Light Heavyweight between Joshua Silveira (4-0) and Rafael Viana (6-1), a three-round fight at five minutes per round.

Contender Comparison:

Going into your main event in Oklahoma on Friday, Joshua Silveira is the taller man, standing 6-foot-1, with Rafael Viana standing 5-foot-11.

How they got here:

Joshua Silveira has yet to lose in his professional MMA career and has gone 5-0 in his last five bouts dating back to amateur MMA.

Last time out, he submitted Matt Paul via first-round rear-naked choke in LFA 98 back in January.

In the other corner, Rafael Viana has posted a 4-1 mark in his last five MMA appearances.

Most recently, he was stopped by Devin Clark (second-round TKO due to a hand injury) during RFA 37’s main event more than five years ago on April 15, 2016.

RFA merged with Legacy Fighting Championships less than a year later to give way to the Legacy Fighting Alliance as it is known today.

The Tale of the Tape:

Tapology shows that Rafael Viana owns a 76 ½-inch reach, with no such information for Joshua Silveira.

Prediction: Joshua Silveira by unanimous decision.
