An Exclusive Interview By A.C. Mann
As the world grasps with information overload of what a new reality may look like, some areas of life are slowly re-emerging. There is a guarded optimism that things will be all right and that we will be stronger, wiser, and more appreciative of the things we may have taken for granted. Included in this awakening; are those who have entertained and inspired us all: the fighters of LFC. This is just a short look into what some of our fighters have gone through. The LFC team is thankful for their time to thoughtfully recount what the last few months have meant.
