He takes on Kevin Aguilar...
MMA Junkie reports that Leonard Garcia (17-11-1) will fight Kevin Aguilar (8-0) for the vacant Legacy FC featherweight title on December 6 at Legacy FC 26. The fight takes place at the Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio and airs on AXS TV. The lightweight belt was previously held by Daniel Pineda, who vacated it when he signed with the UFC in early 2012.
Garcia finished a 17-fight run with the UFC and WEC that ended at 6-10-1. He did get six "Fight of the Night" against several notable names. He then signed with Legacy FC, where he won via knockout over Rey Trujillo in July (by a head kick) and Nick Gonzalez last week by submission. Meanwhile, Aguilar used to compete with Bellator and has been undefeated since his debut in late 2010. After he signed with Legacy, he beat Gonzalez by decision and Hunter Tucker by submission. Seven of his eight wins have been by stoppage.
