Jimmy “The Brick” Flick (13-5) joined us as he prepares to face Greg Fischer (10-1) for the LFA flyweight Title on July 24th in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Flick is coming off a first-round submission victory over Jesse Bazzi in late February of this year when he won the FCF flyweight title. Prior to that win, he lost in the second round to Ray Rodriguez for the XFN bantamweight title. We asked Jimmy his take away from that fight and if it played into his decision to drop down a weight class and compete at flyweight. “The UFC had been going back and forth with their flyweight division. I want to stay active and Ray said he wanted to fight so we brought him to my hometown to fight for the 135 title. I had a good first round. Second round Ray came and put it on me and he was a lot stronger then me at 135. If you check me out at 125 I am hard to finish I’ve only been finished once by UFC vet, Will Campuzano, and that was my first loss at 125. Right now the 125 pound division is where I plan to stay”.
This event will be in front of no fans due to the pandemic, but will be on UFC Fight Pass. We asked Jimmy his thoughts on the matchup with Fischer. “Greg hasn’t fought in over a year and his last fight was at 135 so I hope he’s ready. I know he’s a nutritionist so he should be on point and I am ready to go put a show on”. Flick continued to discuss accepting the fight, “I never even heard of the guy prior to getting he contract, when they sent me the contract I just signed it and sent it back. I treat it like the UFC, I just sign the contract I don’t care who it is”. Flick expressed his displeasure in leaving fights to the judges and made it clear he expects another finish victory for the elite grappler from Oklahoma.
As for what is next Jimmy, he said he wants to face the former LFA flyweight champion Brandon Royval. “I am hoping to win the LFA flyweight title and call out the previous champ Brandon Royval who just beat the number 10 ranked Tim Elliot in the UFC”. Flick continued to explain who he wants next and his future plans. “I have put in so much hard work and the time is now. I am also rallying right now to get on the Tuesday Night Contender show. There is a guy named Nate Smith that is (6-0) and I think he has a padded record. He just has a good management company and a good streak going, and he is getting his shot at Contender Series so I had my manager email Sean Shelby and if you need an opponent for him, call me, I am ready to go”.
