Carlo Prater vs. Carlos Diego Ferreira Added to Legacy FC 20

Carlo Prater

By Timothy J. Gilbert

Legacy FC 20 has added a bout between former UFC and WEC competitor Carlo Prater and undefeated Carlos Diego Ferreira to their main card, announcing that the fight will headline the event, replacing Junior Assuncao and Chris Pecero.

Both fights will remain on the Main card, although Prater vs. Ferreira will be the headliner.

Prater (31-13-1) has competed in over 40 professional fights and was even a WEC welterweight title contender. He is returning after an unsuccessful stint in the UFC. He earned a controversial win over Erick Silva at UFC 142 before he lost his next two matches, and was subsequently cut from the organization.

Prater hopes to extend his current streak after earning a first round submission win over Sebastian Latorre last January

His opponent Ferreira (6-0) is undefeated in his six professional bouts. His last five fights have ended before the start of the third round, with all coming by way of submission.

Legacy FC 20 will be held at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas on May 31.
