The RFA Returns to South Dakota With Two Title Fights Friday on AXS TV
Featherweight and Middleweight Titles on the Line at RFA 25
In August 2014, the RFA held the first ever sanctioned MMA event in South Dakota. To celebrate the occasion, RFA 17 featured a great card, full of local prospects and two title fights. The RFA is headed back to Sioux Falls this Friday and again there are two belts up for grabs!
Justin Lawrence (6-2) won his featherweight title back at RFA 17 and he will try to defend that belt when he faces the undefeated Sam Toomer (9-0) in the main event of RFA 25! The co-main event is also for a title as “Zangief” Gabriel Checco (8-1) takes his second crack at the middleweight belt against submission artist Francisco “Kiko” France (11-3-1). The card also features plenty of local prospects as well as several undefeated fighters in Geane Herrera, TJ Hepburn, LaRue Burley, Khalil Rountree, and Cameron Olson.
