Matthew Frincu victorious with decision win at LFA 44 (Video Highlights)

Australian Matthew Frincu continues to impress as the American based welterweight secured another victory, this time defeating Christian Aguilera in the main event of Legacy Fighting Alliance 44.

Started Martial Arts training after watching Mr Miyagi and Daniel-son in Karate Kid back in 1987. When the sport of MMA arrived many years later, it was a natural progression. Coverage of local MMA was via scarce posts on forums like the Underground and Sherdog. I embarked on covering the sport in 2002 and since then have written thousands of articles for both print and online media, before branching out and starting Fight News Australia in 2010. Outside the site, I dream of racing an F1 car and hiking the Swiss Alps. Most of all, my family is numero uno.
