PRODUCERS NOTES
– We kick the night off with Heavyweights as Colorado’s Tony Darling (2-0) meets Eric Iman (7-5). Darling is 18 years younger than Iman and has yet to taste defeat in MMA as a Pro or Amateur, his longest fight to date is only 1:59. Iman has been a staple in the Utah MMA scene and will look to use his experience to humble the up and coming Darling.

– Our 2nd fight of the night features LFA prelim finisher Ty Gwerder (3-0) vs Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Jones (7-5). Gwerder has 3 first-round finishes, the last 2 on LFA undercards. He’s from Hawaii, but now live & trains in Las Vegas. We haven’t seen Mike Jones since LFA 10 in 2017. He’s since become a Sheriff’s Deputy and he’s won 2 fights in a row, both after moving to Middleweight. This will be Gwerder’s toughest test to date.

– The ladies take center stage in our 3rd fight of the night as Utah’s Kaytlin Neil (4-4) looks to bounce back from her LFA 66 loss against undefeated Sam Hughes (2-0). Neil was upset in her own backyard at LFA 66 and will likely have a big chip on her shoulder. Hughes made her Pro Debut earlier this year and is still pretty green. Neil’s experience should help her out here.

– Hunsinger is returning to the network for the first time since RFA 27 in 2015. He’s since moved from Idaho to Vegas to train at Xtreme Couture, this is his first fight in over 2 years. Kearsley is taking this fight on 4 days notice. Like Hunsinger, he comes from a wrestling background, but unlike Hunsinger, this will be his 3rd fight of the year.

– Our main event is a featherweight matchup between Jon Neal (10-1) and Andrew Cruz (6-3). Neal headlined LFA 66 in SLC in May and suffered his first loss as a Pro in a decision loss to Tyler Diamond. Diamond will fight for the vacant LFA featherweight strap in October. Cruz is new to the LFA & AXS TV but has won 2 in a row and is a Staff Sergeant in the National Guard. The two have combined for 15 finishes, 9 in the first round.
