Leonardo Leite won the middleweight championship at Legacy FC 39 on Friday night, adding the honor to the light heavyweight title designation he already holds. Leite defeated Larry Crowe at the Arena Theater in Houston, scoring a second-round TKO. The bout was marred with controversy, however, as it looked like Leite kneed Crowe in the groin, but the referee didn’t stop the action.

Check out the highlights to judge for yourself.

    Wow, that was all groin! Poor sportsmanship on Leite’s part, you can tell when you knee someone in the cup. Even worse, the ref saw it, immediately jumped when he saw it but then suddenly stopped and let it go. Hopefully Crowe files a complaint with the commission.

  • Though that was without a doubt a groin shot, Leonardo has looked very impressive in most of his MMA fights. Hope the dude gets a chance in UFC or Bellator sometime or another.

    The worst part was his interview and antics after. Acted sorry for a split second then tried to act like he had won fair (and impressively) then wanted to say something to his family in Portuguese and basically ranted on how he won fair and dominated.

    It was a clear and hard groin shot. I hope it’s ruled a NC and he loses the belt he does not deserve.

    IMO the UFC should stay far and away from a guy who acts like this when he knows/sees the replay of his cheap shot. Guys like this are a shame to the sport.
