Matthew Frincu continues to impress with the Arizona based Aussie making quick work of Maycon Mendonca today at Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) 11.

The quick-fire victory follows Frincu’s (11-2) promotional debut in February where on just three weeks notice the 23 year-old welterweight picked up a dominant unanimous decision against Kris Hocum. Originally from the Gold Coast, Frincu has gone 7-1 since relocating to the US back in 2014.
