On Friday, Sept. 9, Resurrection Fighting Alliance will return to the Denver area for its 43rd event. The promotion will once again visit the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo. The night’s main card will air live on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET. The event marks the promotion’s eighth visit to Colorado.

In the night’s main event, the promotion’s vacant welterweight title will be on the line as Colorado’s Brian Camozzi takes on Nick Barnes.

Camozzi, the younger brother of UFC middleweight Chris Camozzi, rides a four-fighting winning streak, with all four wins coming before the final bell. The Factory X product has finished all six of his career wins.


California’s Barnes is an RFA and Bellator MMA veteran. He’s won back-to-back fights since being submitted by UFC veteran Jesse Taylor in August of 2015. The defeat to Taylor is Barnes’ only career loss.

Also announced for the card is a middleweight match-up between Camozzi’s teammate, Adam Stroup, and Brazilian Gabriel Checco, as well as a bantamweight bout featuring Zac Riley and Boston Salmon.

More bouts for the event are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
