Legacy Fighting Championship 58 will see Robert Drysdale fight Ryan Spann, while Mackenzie Dern will make her MMA debut.

LFC made an official announcement earlier in the week that next month’s event will feature two of the world’s best jiu-jitsu fighters.

Robert Drysdale, ADCC and World Jiu-Jitsu Championship gold medalist, will fight Ryan Spann in a light heavyweight title fight that will anchor the Legacy FC 58 show.

Still boasting an unbeaten record as a pro MMA fighter, Drysdale has forced every opponent he has ever face into submission.

However, this fight marks his comeback from the drugs ban that was imposed upon him two years ago at the UFC’s ‘Ultimate Fighter 19’ finale.

The Las Vegas fighter secured victory that night over Keith Berish, via a rear-naked choke, only for the win to be overturned by the Nevada Athletic Commision after his drug test revealed above normal testosterone levels in his system.

Meanwhile, Spenn also boasts a solid fighting record, scoring submissions in seven out of his nine professional wins.

Spenn has been victorious in four of his last five bouts, most recently forcing Aaron Davis into a first round submission at Legacy FC 52 in March.

Undefeated prospect Oron Kahlo will head the co-feature as he takes on Bellator MMA veteran and local man Josh Quayhagen in a lightweight contest.

The show will also see the eagerly anticipated MMA debut of Mackenzie Dern, who is a multiple world champion in both no-gi and gi competition.

Dern claimed gold at both the Worlds and ADCC championships in 2015 and will face Kenia Rosas, who will also be making her debut in the MMA discipline.

Other fights on the card include: Trent Meaux v Jose Ceja at 135 pounds, Gage Duhon v Matt Mooney at lightweight, Brandon Allen v Clovis Hancock at middleweight and Cody Williams v Ryan Hollis at bantamweight.
