It was a fantastic, yet controversial round of fights at RFA 43 last night!

The main event of the evening was a quick one with Brian “The Mantis” Camozzi submitting Nick “The Phoenix” Barnes early in the first round. Now we wait to see if it was enough to send Camozzi to the UFC. The co-main event of the night delivered a huge upset. Gabriel “Zangief” Checco seemed to be losing the fight after the first round, but was able to catch Adam Stroup in a mistake and finish him via kneebar.

Boston “Boom Boom” Salmon was looking to take the record for the most RFA wins last night, but was robbed. Zac “The Anointed Warrior” Riley defeated Salmon in a majority decision that could have gone either way. We hope to see a rematch of these two in the near future.

Here are the highlights:

  • Brian Camozzi def. Nick Barnes via Submission (Guillotine Choke) 1:40 Round 1
  • Gabriel Checco def. Adam Stroup via Submission (Kneebar) 2:32 Round 3
  • Zac Riley def. Boston Salmon via Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
  • Cory Sandhagen def. Clay Wimer via Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
  • Josh Wick def. Jonathon Wyderko via Submission (Armbar) 3:15 Round 2
  • Alonzo Menifield def. Brock Combs via KO (punches) 0:20 Round 2

Next Friday we are headed to Houston, TX for Legacy 59!
