Jake Collier Claims the RFA Middleweight Title in Minnesota | RFA 19 Highlights and Results
Hometown Fighters Impress in the RFA’s First Trip to Minnesota
The RFA held it’s first event in Minnesota Friday and once again they helped put local prospects on the map. The RFA 19 card featured plenty of stand out performances including local fighters Dan Moret and Marvin Blumer, who both brought the house down with finishes in their respective fights. The Co-Main event saw Abel Cullum once again impress as he earned his second submission win in four weeks in the RFA.
