LFC promoter Mick Maynard notified Sherdog.com of the news late
Thursday night and verified that Antonio
Banuelos has been tapped to replace Flick at the May 31 event,
which takes place at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi,
Texas, and airs live on AXS TV. The event is headlined by a
lightweight showdown between Carlo Prater
Diego Ferreira and will also see Damacio Page
make his LFC debut against Patrick
Banuelos has gone 2-2-1 in his last five fights but is still
searching for his first Legacy win. The World Extreme Cagefighting
veteran debuted for the Texas-based promotion this past September,
falling in a unanimous decision to Joshua Sampo
before fighting Rafael de
Freitas to a split draw on March 1 at LFC 18.
Ozkilic, meanwhile, has been bested just once in eight pro outings.
The 27-year-old rides a two-fight winning streak into his Legacy
debut, as “Alp” closed out last year with a decision victory over
Grindstaff and followed that triumph with a Feb. 15 technical
knockout of Josh
Robinson under the Rumble Time Promotions banner.
