The chances of MMA fans getting to see two large organizations go head to head is slim to none; but this past Saturday, RFA took on fellow AXS TV promotion Legacy FC.

Mike Bronzoulis showcased his amped up cardio with a unanimous decision win over Dave Burrow to claim the vacant Legacy FC Lightweight title. Luke Sanders defended his RFA Bantamweight belt in dominating fashion with a unanimous decision win that almost rendered Terrion Ware, his opponent, blind. And in the main event Flyweight Alexandre Pantoja put RFA up 3-1 with a come from behind triangle choke over UFC veteran Damacio Page at 5:00 of round 2.
