On Thursday, Aug. 20, Resurrection Fighting Alliance hosted the weigh-ins for its 29th event, dubbed USA vs. Brazil, which takes place Friday, Aug. 21, from the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D. The night’s main card airs live on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET.

In the night’s main event, the promotion will crown a new featherweight champion as Colorado’s Ricky Musgrave takes on Brazilian Raoni Barcelos. The 31-year-old Musgrave is a former Army Ranger and enters the title affair riding a four-fight winning streak. He stopped UFC veteran Alvin “Kid” Robinson by first-round TKO at RFA 22 in January. Barcelos, meanwhile, ran his record to 8-1 in February with a first-round knockout of Jamal Parks at RFA 22. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt has stopped six of his eight wins before the final bell.

The co-main event features a welterweight contest between South Dakota native Jordon Larson and unbeaten Brazilian Ackson Junior. Larson has scored back-to-back wins inside the RFA cage, while Junior will be making his promotional debut riding the momentum of five straight wins to open his career.

Below are the results of the event’s weigh-ins.
