Another action-packed year of fights is officially underway on AXS TV Fights. The first of 41 events went down Friday in Colorado Springs, and it was another strong showing from the RFA. The Main Event featured striker Chidi Njokuani versus grappler Gilbert Smith. The fight was supposed to be a welterweight title fight, but with Njokuani missing weight it became a scenario where only Smith was eligible to take the belt. Njokuani proved too much for Smith, repeatedly defending takedowns and out-striking Smith to earn the unanimous decision. In the night’s co-main event, Mark “Tricky” Dickman made quick work of the more experienced Donald Sanchez, getting the submission victory in under two minutes. Elsewhere on the card, Ricky Musgrave, Josh Huber, and Kevin Gray all delivered decisive victories.
Here are the highlights:
