The Resurrection Fighting Alliance kicked off their 2016 with brawl after brawl Friday on AXS TV.
The RFA’s return to Colorado delivered plenty of action from beginning to end, including the crowning of a new welterweight champ. The main event of RFA 34 featured a welterweight title fight between former champ Benjamin Smith and Serbian-born Bojan Velickovic. Velickovic, a recent transplant to Colorado, submitted Smith in the third round of their title bout handing Smith his second loss in a row within the 1st Bank Center.
Also on the card, John Poppie bounced back in his second RFA fight, defeating crowd-favorite Adam Stroup. Zac Riley pulled off a huge upset over UFC-vet Hugo Viana and TJ Dillashaw’s training partner Cody Sandhagen kicked off the night with a victory over Andrew Tenneson preserving his undefeated record.
