A pair of lightweights with 20 wins combined will square off in the main event of LFA 76 Friday night live on AXS TV from Kansas.
Trey Ogden and Nick Browne will square off in the main event of Legacy Fighting Alliance 76 Friday night from the Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas.
The main card will air live on AXS TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
“I am excited to announce that LFA will be coming to Kansas at LFA 76,” said LFA president Ed 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 September 13.”
Ogden Trains With UFC Veteran James Krause
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 Legacy Fighting Alliance fight cards. Related: Zviad Lazishvili Hopes LFA Debut Leads To UFC Contract
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 Legacy Fighting Alliance. 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.
“Nyquil” Brings Skills, Resume To LFA
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.

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.

The 29-year-old regional kingpin is now eager to make an even bigger statement in the main event of LFA 76.
