Victor Altamirano will get a new opponent for his LFA Flyweight Championship fight on February 19th, as he is now booked to fight Nate Smith at the event. Smith will take the place of Carlos Mota, who has departed the bout for undisclosed reasons.
The new fight for the vacant LFA Flyweight Championship is set to take place at the Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas, USA.
The change was announced during LFA’s broadcast on Friday night.
The fight will be Smith’s return to the regional scene. His last fight was in September of 2020, where he lost via submission to Jimmy Flick on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series.”
Prior to his “Contender Series” loss, Smith had six wins as a pro, including a victory over Sean Stebbins on an LFA card in 2020.
Altamirano will see an LFA title fight after attaining eight wins as a pro within the promotion. His last fight was in November, where he submitted Lloyd McKinney in the second round with a triangle choke.
Mota was set to test his five-fight undefeated record at LFA 100 prior to being pulled from the card.
