For the second time in less than a year, the RFA took on another MMA promotion and for the second time the RFA came out on top.
RFA 35 featured the RFA’s first trip to Utah and for the event they matched some of their fighters against fighters from the Utah-based promotion Showdown Fights. It was a dominant night for the RFA as all six of their fighters were victorious on the main card.
In the main event, Thiago Moises, who was moved up to main event status earlier in the week, took on the more experienced David Castillo for the vacant RFA lightweight title. Castillo dropped Moises in the first round and was looking good in round two when an uppercut by Moises caught Castillo and would eventually lead to a slick armbar victory for the young Brazilian. The co-main event saw Thiago “Monstrinho” Alves get a decision win over David Putvin on just three days notice and RFA fighters Curtis Blaydes, James Nakashima, and Ricky Steele all kept their undefeated records going with dominant performances.
