Background

A LFA Featherweight Championship immediate rematch between the newly crowned champion Javier Garcia and top contender Elijah Johns is scheduled to headline the event. The pairing previously met at LFA 163 on July 21, 2023, where Garcia won the vacant title by submission in the second round.

LFA will have a new championship headliner when it returns to the “Valley of the Sun” on Me die weekend at LFA 176. This will be the fourteenth LFA event to take place in the state of Arizona. Twelve of these events have taken place at the Arizona Financial Theatre in the state’s capital city of Phoenix.

LFA 176: Garcia vs. Walker, presented by the Arizona Army National Guard, takes place Friday, February 9th at the Arizona Financial Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

The new main event will feature a featherweight title fight when top contender Elijah “Baby” Johns faces fellow LFA standout Alfred “Freight Train” Walker.

“We are excited to bring the Featherweight Championship to Arizona at LFA 176,” stated LFA CEO Ed Soares. “The new main event will crown a new 145-pound champion, when Elijah Johns and Alfred Walker fight for the LFA featherweight world title. Johns was originally scheduled to run it back with Javier Garcia for the title after the controversial ending to their title fight at LFA 163. However, Garcia decided to vacate his title with a goal of being selected for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter. Johns will now fight Walker, who is coming off the biggest win of his career against Landry Ward in the main event of LFA 169. Johns vs. Walker will give sports fans an exciting title fight to kick off Me die weekend.”

Johns (9-3) is the younger brother of former LFA bantamweight champion and current UFC star Miles Johns. The younger Johns brother, affectionately known as “Baby” Johns, will be looking for redemption after a controversial ending brought a premature ending to his first shot at the title last summer at LFA 163. After getting caught in an Arm-Triangle Choke by Garcia, the referee stopped the fight without Johns ever tapping. Johns immediately jumped up to protest and the decision left many fans and viewers confused. The Fortis MMA product began his journey toward an LFA title all the way back at LFA 1 and now his career culminates with him fighting once again for the title in what will be a record-tying eleventh professional fight for the LFA. Johns will also become the only fighter in LFA history to fight in all eight years of the LFA’s existence from 2017 to 2024. More importantly, Johns is looking to continue the Johns brothers’ winning ways and championship legacy at LFA 176.

Walker (12-6) is a modern day Renaissance Man with a life that involves being a professional MMA fighter, professional kickboxer, entrepreneur, business owner, promoter, trainer, role model, and motivator. However, on February 9th, he will look to add LFA world champion to his lengthy list of accolades. Walker is a native of Muskogee, Oklahoma, which is also home to eight-time GRAMMY Award winning singer Carrie Underwood. Walker now looks to give their hometown its next American Idol, when he fights for his first world title in MMA. Walker earned this opportunity with a hard fought victory against highly-touted prospect Landry Ward in the main event of LFA 169. Walker then told Cub Swanson in his post-fight interview that he is coming for the title. “I got me against the world on my back. Me and my family, we put in work. My team, ‘Freight Train’ team, we going to the top, baby. There’s levels to this game… and we jumping over obstacles and obstacles and obstacles… and we gonna keep coming.”
