On Friday, July 3, Resurrection Fighting Alliance hosted its 27th event from the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho. The night’s main card aired live on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET.
In the night’s main event, veteran bantamweights Joe Murphy and Jesse Brock locked horns. The 27-year-old Murphy tasted defeat for just the second time in his career at RFA 23 in February. That night, Murphy fell short on the scorecards against fellow Californian Terrion Ware. Brock, meanwhile, made his promotional debut in front of his hometown crowd. The Bellator MMA and ShoXC veteran entered the contest riding a four-fight winning streak.
The co-main event featured a pair of flyweights looking to put themselves on the map as Idaho’s Czar Sklavos took on Utah’s Nicolas Burgos. The 33-year-old Sklavos had won four of his last five outings leading into his promotional debut. Also stepping into the RFA cage for the first time was Burgos, who had scored six straight wins, including a decision win over former RFA titleholder Matt Manzanares.
