Welcome to Leg Kick TKO, a MMA blog that thinks Nate Diaz shouldn't be scared, comrade, and just fight Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Prelims (Fight Pass)
Lightweight - Charlie "The Spaniard" Brenneman vs Beneil "Benny" Dariush
- Brenneman's Style - Wrestling
- Dariush's Style - Grappling
- Prediction - Brenneman by TKO
- Thoughts - Wait, so Beneil is from Iran and has "Darius" in his surname, but doesn't go by "Prince of Persia" or anything similar? He done goofed, big time.
Lightweight - Vinc "From Hell" Pichel vs Garett "Goodnight" Whitely
- Pichel's Style - Striking
- Whitely's Style - Striking
- Prediction - Pichel by KO
- Thoughts - Rumor is if you hum the Dagestan anthem (They do have an anthem, right?), near Pichel, he goes catatonic and gets a total deer-in-headlights look.
Prelims (Fox Sports 1)
Flyweight - Alptekin "Turkish Delight' Ozkilic vs Louis "Da Last Samurai" Smolka
- Ozkilic's Style - Wrestling, luring English schoolchildren into the clutches of the White Witch.
- Smolka's Style - Grappling, being Tom Cruise?
- Prediction - Ozkilic by decision
Middleweight - Trevor "Hot Sauce" Smith vs Brian "B-Hou" Houston
- Smith's Style - Grappling, AND1'ing
- Houston's Style - Striking
- Prediction - Houston by KO
Lightweight - Elias "Xuxu" Silveiro vs Isaac Vallie-Flagg
- Silveiro's Style - Striking
- Vallie-Flagg's Style - Striking and grappling
- Prediction - Vallie-Flagg by decision

- Dillashaw's Style - Grappling
- Easton's Style - BJJ
- Prediction - Dillashaw by submission
