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 LFA fight cards. 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 LFA. 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.
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. Then 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. Those two wins came over opponents that currently have a combined record of 26-5. Browne is responsible for two of those losses and both came via first round stoppage. The 29-year-old regional kingpin is now eager to make an even bigger statement in the main event of LFA 76.
