Humanizing Athletes: UFC Fighter Jimmy Flick’s Favorite Things

UFC Fighter Jimmy Flick (15-5)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

***EDIT*** 11/26/2020

Flick received a UFC contract after putting on a grappling clinic on Nate Smith and will make his UFC debut on Dec. 5, 2020, against Cody Durden.


Jimmy “The Brick” Flick is one of the best flyweights that hasn’t fought in the UFC. Well, he is going to have a chance to fight for a UFC contract on Sept. 1, 2020

Flick has been fighting professionally for a decade. In his 14 wins, Flick has finished 12 of his opponents. All of the 12 finishes have come by submission. He is supremely dangerous on the ground and is riding a two-fight winning streak.

“The Brick” is coming off one of his biggest wins of his career. He submitted Greg Fischer in 38 seconds to win the vacant flyweight title in the main event at LFA 86.

Flick did not have much time to relax as he will step in on short notice to fight Nate Smith on Sept. 1, 2020. He will be the co-main event on week five of “Dana White’s Contender Series”, fighting for the chance at a UFC contract.

When asked what we should expect from his fight Flick said, “Expect a lot of action and a finish because that’s what I like to do.”
