The Southwestern MMA scene is riddled with fighters who know how to lay the lumber on their opponents. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a gritty Southwestern grappler whose never say die mentality makes him one of Oklahoma’s top ground artists at 135 pounds.
A professional since May 2010 and representing Thunderkick Tulsa, Jimmy Flick holds a 12-4 record in 16 career bouts as a professional comprised of 10 submissions and two decisions. Flick has fought for various promotions including Legacy Fighting Alliance and Bellator MMA.
In his MMA debut at Bellator MMA 20. he defeated Humberto DeLeon via unanimous decision. Flick defeated his next two opponents in Anthony Sessions and Humberto DeLeon.
Then, he submitted his next three opponents that saw wins over Wesley Dunlap and Adam de la Garza. At XFL Rage on the River 6 Flick tapped out Sean O’ Grady in the first round. He also submitted Tavares Collins in round one at Xtreme Fight Night 335. At Xtreme Fight Night 340, Flick tapped out Ben Vasquez in the first round.
In his debut appearance with LFA, he faced The Ultimate Fighter season 14 alum and UFC veteran Johnny Bedford in the main event of LFA 16 and tapped him out in the third round via guillotine choke. He also submitted Jeimeson Saudino in round two at Xtreme Fight Night 352.
For his second outing with LFA, Flick faced Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Season one alum Cj Hamilton in the co-main event of LFA 52 and submitted him via arm triangle choke in the second round to secure his third straight victory.
With 10 of his 12 career victories ending in a tap out, opponents usually end up collapsing under the relentless top pressure of this gritty Southwestern submission ace. Standing with an impressive 12-4 record, it would come as no surprise to me if this 16 fight veteran gets a well deserved DWTCS to call up when season three of the show kicks off next year!
