RFA 32 Results: Higo Crushes Blumer, Vannata Destroys Curry

On Friday, Nov. 6, Resurrection Fighting Alliance hosted its 32nd event from the Mystic Lake Casino Hotel in Prior Lake, Minn. The night’s main card aired live on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET.

The event was headlined by a bantamweight clash between Minnesota’s Melvin Blumer and Brazilian Leandro Higo. Blumer was coming off a violent, first-round knockout of Jeff Curran at RFA 24 in March, while Higo submitted Terrion Ware at RFA 29 in August.

Also on the card, former welterweight titleholder Benjamin Smith looked to rebound from a title defeat in June when he took on unbeaten prospect Craig Eckelberg.
