Luke Sanders Captures the RFA Bantamweight Title in Quick Fashion at RFA 20

Local Fighters Make the Most of the RFA Spotlight

The Mile High City has been good to the RFA, and the trend continued Friday at RFA 20. Four out of six fights on the main card ended in finishes, including the much anticipated main event. In the night’s headliner, undefeated Luke Sanders squared off with local prospect Jarred Mercado, and he made quick work of Mercado, to capture the RFA bantamweight title. The night’s co-main event saw Ben Smith grind out a unanimous decision win over hometown favorite Josh Cavan, and budding star Boston Salmon returned to the octagon and delivered his third TKO victory.

Here are the highlights:

  • Luke Sanders def. Jarred Mercado via TKO 1:06 Rnd 1
  • Ben Smith def. Josh Cavan via Decision (Unanimous)
  • Gilbert Smith def. Bojan Velickovic via Decision (Majority)
  • Alvin Robinson def. Fabio Serrao via Submission (RNC) 3:14 Rnd 1
  • Cody Mumma def. Colton Vaughn via KO (Punch) 0:11 Rnd 1
  • Boston Salmon def. James DeHerrera via TKO 2:10 Rnd 2
