At this point, we're probably starting to sound like a broken record when it comes to Legacy Fighting Alliance. Nearly every weekend, LFA pumps out crazy knockouts, insane elbows, and viral head kicks like a veritable footage factory.

Whether Sean O'Malley felt compelled to live up to the expectations or not, he sure did with flying colors.

No way David Nuzzo could decipher which attack was going to come next and then that next technique has already came — upside his head. Take note fighters, the next big trend in MMA is kick confusion.
