LFA returns tonight for an event in South Dakota, and a flyweight prospect will fight in front of his home crowd.

In the LFA 19 co-main event, which takes place at Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D., with a main card that airs on AXS TV, Sid Bice (6-1) takes on Ken Porter (10-3).

Bice, a Titan and RFA veteran, fights out of Denver at Factory X. But in Sioux Falls, he’ll be fighting close to where he’s from. He got back on track in front of his home fans in April with a decision over Cody Land after a loss to Pedro Nobre at Titan FC 38 in April 2016.

Ahead of the fight, AXS TV’s Phoenix Carnevale caught up with Bice to talk about tonight’s co-feature, fighting for the home crowd, and where he thinks he beats Porter.

Check out the video above to hear from him ahead of the fight.

'LFA 19: Michaud vs. Rodrigues' slated for Aug. 18 in South Dakota

LFA is returning to South Dakota in August.

Officials today announced LFA 19 is slated for Aug. 18 at Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, a South Dakota city that has already hosted two LFA 19 events in 2017. The main card airs on AXS TV.

In the LFA 19 headliner, David Michaud (11-3) takes on fellow welterweight Ciro Rodrigues (20-7).

Michaud, who went 1-2 during a 2014-2015 UFC stint that included a spot on “The Ultimate Fighter 16,” looks for his fourth win in five fights. The 28-year-old South Dakota native and former South Dakota State University wrestler most recently scored a TKO win over fellow UFC vet Jake Lindsey at “LFA: Sioux Falls Fight Night 1.”

He meets Rodrigues, a 28-year-old Brazilian vet who turned pro as a 17-year-old. He’s currently on a 7-1 run. The former Jungle Fight champion and Nova Uniao fighter now heads to the U.S. for his first fight in the country.

Also on the card, Marcus Edwards (12-5), a Titan FC and MFC vet with 11 finishes in 12 career wins, takes on fellow welterweight Clarence Jordan (9-3-1), a rear-naked-choke specialist who looks for his third straight win.

Additional LFA 19 fights will be announced in the coming weeks.

The latest LFA 19 card includes:

  • David Michaud vs. Ciro Rodrigues
  • Marcus Edwards vs. Clarence Jordan
