HCL 20: Almost Legal was the twentieth mixed martial arts event held by the Human Cockfighting League. The event took place on May 12, 2013 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.
This event featured seven sanctioned mixed martial arts bouts. All fights consisted of three five-minute rounds, except for the main event championship fight, which consisted of five five-minute rounds.
The main event featured the second successful title defense of HCL Light Heavyweight Champion JC Hunite, as he withstood a strong challenger in Sergei Matryoshka. The Russian nearly finished Hunite in both of the first two rounds, but Hunite's resilience allowed him to fight back, nearly dropping Matryoshka early in the first round. However, seemingly out of nowhere, Hunite's fast striking was the key, beating Matryoshka to the punch with an uppercut, and finishing him with punches until the referee stopped the fight.
In the co-main event, fan favorite Stuart Peppers suffered his third loss in HCL, as Canadian nationalist Wes Blackwell exacted revenge from his loss to Peppers at HCL 6. Blackwell dominated early with an onslaught, not giving Peppers any time to develop his offense. The ending was a bit controversial to the Ventura crowd, as Peppers was dropped with a series of punches, and referee Fontaine Kobayashi called for the end of the fight with six seconds left on the clock. Many of the fans thought the round had ended, and were surprised to see the fight end at that time.
