LFA (Legacy Fighting Alliance) CEO Ed Soares announced that
the promotion will be bringing a lightweight showdown to Kansas next month. LFA
fan favorite Trey Ogden returns to face the highly-touted Nick Browne in the
main event of LFA 76.
The main event of LFA 76 will bring a lightweight showdown to the
Wichita metro area when LFA standout Trey Ogden returns to battle BJJ black
belt Nick "Nyquil" Browne. LFA 76 - Ogden vs. Browne takes place
Friday, September 13th at the Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas. The entire main
card will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT.
"I am excited to announce that LFA will be coming to Kansas
at LFA 76," stated Soares. "Trey Ogden has looked amazing inside the
LFA Octagon. He returns after a third dominant performance for us in February.
He will face Nick Browne, who is a talented BJJ black belt from Pennsylvania.
This will be an exciting main event for our first visit to the Wichita area on

Ogden (12-3) returns to the LFA Octagon looking to build on
momentum he has built on the strength of his first three stellar performances
for the promotion. He submitted T.J. Brown in his promotional debut and quickly
became a fixture at the top of LFA fight cards. Now the James Krause protégé
from Kansas City, Missouri has the opportunity to shine in a main event after
winning two co-headlining bouts for the promotion in his last two outings for
LFA. In those two bouts, Ogden faced local favorites. He submitted Travis
Perzynski in Minnesota at LFA 34 and he out-dueled Anthony Baccam in Iowa at
LFA 60. The 29-year-old will now get to fight in friendlier confines, while
also looking to lay claim to the status as top contender in the lightweight
division with another strong showing at LFA 76.
Browne (8-1) signed with LFA after compiling an impressive résumé
in his native Pennsylvania. The BJJ black belt known as "Nyquil"
began his career with seven consecutive wins, while facing some of the toughest
opposition available. In fact, in just his second professional fight, Browne
stopped an eventual Dana White's Contender Series standout with punches in just
25 seconds. Then in his seventh win of that seven-fight win streak, Browne
submitted an NCAA Division I wrestler with a kneebar at just 1:41 of Round 1.
Those two wins came over opponents that currently have a combined record of
26-5. Browne is responsible for two of those losses and both came via first
round stoppage. The 29-year-old regional kingpin is now eager to make an even
bigger statement in the main event of LFA 76.
