Legion Welcomes Juan Lubbe To Their Brand
Juan "Legacy" Lubbe has become the latest addition to the Legion Fight Gear family following his move to Fightstar. This was announced by the founder of the brand, Brandon Kinnear.
"Legion was initially approached by Juan's publicist and management team to discuss Juan's return to the cage," said Kinnear. The owner of Legion said that one of the reasons why Lubbe was considered a good fit is because he has a story to tell.
"To sponsor Juan is an absolute honor," said Kinnear. "Another blessing from God."
Lubbe will be representing Legion alongside Nkosi Ndebele, who has been representing the brand for a while. Ndebele fights out of Nova MMA which according to Kinnear was voted one of the best MMA clubs in the East Rand. "We are proud to have both Nkosi "The Future" King and Juan " Legacy" Lubbe as part of this growing brand."
Kinnear said that Legion's relationship with Lubbe is going to go beyond sponsorship. "Business discussions on a corporate level between The Digital Intelligence Agency (DIA) and UMILGroup along with other Godly driven business partners/owners such as Cafe Vic will see a new venture emerge and unfold within the next financial year," said Kinnear. UMILGroup is a business owned by Lubbe. "The DIA and it's NPO will be working with UMILGroup and Fontscape in securing the right people and sponsors for the homeless and hungry project."
Kinnear said that the Legion and Legacy brands will grow their footprints and be able to manufacture and supply world class training gear and clothing wear to the martial arts industry.
"The owners here at Legion and The Digital Intelligence Agency would like to wish Juan all the best for his fight," said Kinnear.
He added that they would also like to wish Lubbe's opponent the best for his fight. "It takes 2 warriors to step up and put on a show," said Kiennear.
Lubbe will be spotted with Legion gear for the first time at Fightstar 22 on the 11th of March 2017.
