Legacy Fighting Championship is considered by many a feeder organization for the UFC as the case of Mackenzie Dern proved. Their latest acquisition is the 17 year old prospect – Lucas Brennan.

 HOUSTON, Texas – Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) officials have announced the signing of 17-year-old Lucas Brennan to the promotion’s first multi-fight amateur contract. Lucas is the son of UFC and Pride veteran Chris “The Westside Strangler” Brennan.

At such a young age, Lucas is already an accomplished grappler. A few of his accomplishments are 2013 Kids Jiu Jitsu World Champion, 2016 Battle of the Ages World Champion, 2016 IBJJF British National Champion and Absolute Champion, a brown belt in Jiu Jitsu and he is currently ranked #1 in wrestling at 138 lb in the state of Texas in the 5A division.

After competing in pankration fights, Lucas won in his first official amateur MMA fight in August, winning by submission. Lucas will compete exclusively for the LFA for his final 3 amateur fights before turning professional with the LFA.

Interestingly Lucas was perhaps one of the youngest purple belts in the world according to his father:

 All these parents holding their kids at blue for 3 and 4 years because of the competition in the ibjjf when you know your kid kills most purples and some browns and now even some blacks? Why allow it. Ibjjf is not going to tell me when I can promote my kids. So yes Lucas is probably the youngest purple belt in the world at the moment, and he’d probably have crazy hard matches with the 15 blue belt kids that do the big ibjjf tournaments, but every other purple in the world will know he’s a legit purple. Why hold him to blue to compete against the same kids for 3 years straight? We’re trying to do something bigger.

Lucas has since been promoted to brown belt:

 

Just like and continue scrolling if you hate the essays I post lol😂 So this just happened. Many of you that follow me may not understand how huge this is and how much it means to me but I don’t care. I got my promotion to brown belt today and I was actually in tears on the mat as it was presented to me. It is a huge step forward that I was not expecting nor thought would be coming any time soon. It’s amazing to have earned and especially at my age, making me probably one of the youngest brown belts in the world right now. On the other hand though, it is ultimately humbling. Helps me understand how far I’ve come in such a short amount of time but also how much more distance I have to cover and puts into perspective more that I want to do for the sports I love. This is a lifestyle, not just a sport or a hobby you do in your spare time. It is something that has changed my life and tonight I’ve completed most of my journey to the top of what I love most. But I am far from done, and far from the top still. Work is still to be put in, and I’m excited to see it’s rewards. Thank you so much to everyone I train with daily, all my students that I teach and spread my still-growing knowledge to, and especially my coaches. My dad @chris_brennan_3x_champ has been a huge influence and I couldn’t be happier to have him as my coach from day 1. Thank you to my sponsors for supporting me since the beginning, and I can’t wait to show what else is in store. Thank you all…now take a look at that last pic👀😂 Also congrats to my brother @tyler_brennan921 on his huge promotion and my homie @jacobgolson on his promotion to blue, he’s made huge improvements since moving out here and training with us everyday and I’m stoked to see him getting so much better. Good times are coming boys #allthewayup #jiujitsulifestyle #brownbelt
