Thiago Moises Outlasts Jamall Emmers to Keep His Title | RFA 38 Results & Highlights


The RFA delivered a perfect appetizer to UFC 199 Friday night on AXS TV!

Just down the highway from where UFC 199 will be going down tomorrow, the RFA returned to The Hangar in Costa Mesa for another exciting night of fights. In the main event there was a rare title defense in the RFA. It’s fairly common for RFA champions to get scooped up by the UFC, but 21 year-old Thiago Moises  got the opportunity to defend his title at RFA 38. Moises faced off with Jamall Emmers, who took the fight on just a week’s notice. The short notice wasn’t a problem for Emmers early on, he even pushed the champ early in the fight. Moises started a bit slow, but took over late in the fight and sealed his victory in round five to retain his title.

The beginning of the main card for RFA 38 began with some highlight reel finishes courtesy of Christos Giagos, Albert Morales, and Jason Gonzalez.

Here are the highlights:

  • Thiago Moises def. Jamall Emmers via TKO (punches) 2:52 Round 5
  • Vinicius Zani def. Joe Murphy by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28)
