Event Primer - World Series of Fighting 3

Welcome to Leg Kick TKO, a MMA blog that's terrified to stand and bang with Shinya Aoki.

Preliminary Card (Sherdog.com)

Lightweight - Brenson Hansen vs Josh Montalvo
  • Hansen's Style -Freestyle
  • Montalvo's Style - Freestyle
  • Prediction - Hansen by decision
  • Thoughts - "Brenson Hansen" sounds like the Dollar Store-version of Benson Henderson.
Bantamweight - Carson "Little Juggernaut" Beebe vs Joe Murphy
  • Beebe's Style - Grappling
  • Murphy's Style - Grapling
  • Prediction -Murphy by submission
  • Thoughts - I've never been able to determine which of the Beebe brothers, Carson or Chase are the worst (All MMA siblings are split between good and awful fighters) because both are pretty crappy.
Featherweight - Jeff Smith vs Jerrod Sanders
  • Smith's Style - Grappling
  • Sanders's Style - Grappling
  • Prediction - Sanders by submission

Middleweight - Kendrick "Big Problem" Miree vs Krasimi "The Wrestler" Mladenov
  • Miree's Style -Grappling
  • Mladenov's Style - Wrestling
  • Prediction -  Mladenov by decision

Lightweight - John "Guns" Gunderson vs Dan "The Upgrade" Lauzon
  • Gunderson's Style - BJJ
  • Lauzon's Style - BJJ
  • Prediction - Gunderson by submission
  • Thoughts - In reference to the Beebe fight, Dan Lauzon is most assuredly the crappier of the two Lauzon brothers.

Main Card (NBC Sports)

Lightweight - Jacob "Dr. Feelgood" Volkmann vs Lyle "Fancy Pants" Beerbohm
  • Volkmann's Style - Wrestling, complaining about OBAMA
  • Beerbohm's Style - Grappling, meth
  • Prediction - Beerbohm by submission
  • Thoughts - If Volkmann wins, he'll be fine saying whatever he wants, since the Secret Service won't be watching World Series of Fighting.

Lightweight - Brian "The Bandit" Cobb vs Justin Gaethje
  • Cobb's Style -Grappling
  • Gaethje's Style - Striking
  • Prediction -Gaethje by TKO

Welterweight - Jon Fitch vs Josh "The People's Warrior" Burkman
  • Fitch's Style - Wrestling, Fitching, temporal anomalies

  • Prediction - Fitch by decision
  • Thoughts - Due to Fitch's status as being unstuck in time, he might be fighting Burkman for the first time when he goes into the cage on Saturday.
