Plus Gilbert Smith Goes Out on Top in His Retirement Fight!
In the main event of the evening Markus Perez and Ian “The Hurricane” Heinisch went to war for the vacant LFA Middleweight title.

Both men came out strong in the first round, but Heinisch quickly found himself in trouble on the ground against the Brazilian. Perez was able to secure a tight head & arm triangle choke two minutes into the round, becoming the new Middleweight champion and maintaining his perfect record.
Gilbert Smith took his final walk to the octagon to take on Ben Smith for the second time. Gilbert won the first matchup by submission back at RFA 34, but Ben was looking for some revenge. Gilbert dominated the first round by keeping busy on the ground and catching Ben off guard with multiple submission attempts. In the last few seconds of the 2nd round, Gilbert caught Ben in a guillotine choke, scoring himself the victory and going out on top!
