It’s about to get warmer in Minnesota! The Resurrection Fighting Alliance fills the MMA void this week with another exciting card on AXS TV!
For the second time this year, the RFA welterweight strap is on the line! Back in January Chidi Njokuani defeated Gilbert Smith in a fight for the title. Unfortunately for Njokuani, he missed weight and was ineligible to take home the belt. This week the RFA heads north to Minnesota where hometown favorite Tat Romero (24-5) will take on RFA vet Benjamin Smith (13-2) for the vacant strap in the night’s main event.
Friday’s card also features set of twins from Minnesota, Melvin and Marvin Blumer (aka The Bash Brothers). Melvin Blumer (11-2) will have his hands full as he takes on UFC and WEC vet Jeff “Big Frog” Curran (36-16) in the co-main event. Marvin Blumer (11-4) is set to to face RFA vet Darrick Minner (11-4) in what could be the “Fight of the Night.” Rounding out the card: the returns of Dan “Hitman” Moret (versus Bobby Moffett) and Bojan Velickovic (versus Chris Hugh), as well as the RFA debut of undefeated Andre Tieva (8-0).
