LFA 115 airs live this Saturday on UFC Fight Pass. The card is set to go down in the Menominee Nation Arena out of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. In one of the biggest cards of the year, LFA is hosting 15 fights, and seven of those are on the main card.
Two of the hottest US-based light-heavyweight will see who the next LFA champion will be. Josh Silveira (5-0) the son of American Top Team head coach Conan Silveira is aiming towards his first regional title. Silveira has fought his last three times for LFA racking up three finishes. Silveira wrestled in College for Arizona State University and was a Florida high school state champ. His opponent Tee Cummins (3-0) is also looking for his first regional title win. Cummins who has split fights between light-heavyweight and heavyweight will be taking this fight at 205 after fighting at heavyweight last May. After an average amateur career going 5-3, he sits undefeated as a pro. Although he isn’t experienced much in pro-MMA, Cummins has also dabbled in some bare-knuckle boxing for BKFC going 2-0.
A warm-up to the main event will see a pair of bigger guys clashing at heavyweight. Wisconsin’s Chad Johnson (6-2) will fight undefeated Jordan Heiderman (4-0). The 35-year-old Chad Johnson is a veteran of the contender series. He fought last year against current UFC fighter Josh Parisian and came up short. This Saturday will be his first fight since that setback. Johnson is a former KOTC amateur and pro heavyweight champion. “Big Rig” is looking for his first win in two years. Heiderman who is undefeated as a pro dates back to 2015 since the last time he lost a fight which was his only loss. His last three fights have been for LFA and last May beat a tough Anthony Garrett.
Featured Lightweight Bout
Lucas Clay (7-1) is making his return to the cage off his win in January on LFA 98. He beat contender series veteran JJ Okanovich by unanimous decision. Clay who has wins over JJ, Mike Breeden, and Brant Moore is aiming to expand his win streak to four. Looking to stop Clay is Roufusport product Jacob Kozorosky. Kozorosky last May handed amateur standout Davi Young his first pro loss. The 30-year-old has won his last two fights.
In a bantamweight clash another Roufusport fighter Bryan Bautista (4-1) will take on Mando “El Torro” Gutierrez (5-1). Bautista has won his last three fights. The only loss Gutierres has is to top prospect Mo Miller. Between the two they are 9-2 with a 100% finish-rate all coming by the way of submission. Kathryn Paprocki (3-1) someone who impressed in her LFA debut last May is fighting Massachusetts’s Hilarie Rose (5-3). Paprocki’s sole loss is to Invicta FC champ and Bellator veteran Emily Ducote. On the other side, Reed is a contender series veteran of 2020 who came up short to Cheyanne Buys.

Making his fourth consecutive appearance for LFA Cooper is on a two-fight win streak. He’s gonna be taking on Andrew D Johnson (2-0-1) who had already fought for Bellator, Ring of Combat, and CFFC.
