RFA 14: Matt Mazanares Takes Flyweight Championship in Controversial Bout
By FCF Staff
Here are the results from the latest Resurrection Fighting Alliance card, which saw Matt Manzanares lay claim to the promotion’s vacant flyweight title, by handing Junior Maranhao a split decision loss.
The result was not without controversy, however, as Maranhao reportedly passed out in his corner following the fourth round. After being asked by ringside physicians if he was okay to continue, Maranhao came out for the fifth, and ended up losing the decision.
RFA 14 was hosted by the Cheyenne, Wyoming, and the main card was broadcast on AXS TV.
