RFA

RFA 18 scheduled for Sept. 12th in Albuquerque

Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) has announced a date and venue for RFA 18. The promotion will be making its first trip to the Southwest on September 12th at the Albuquerque Convention Center. The card will be headlined by one of Albuquerque’s fastest rising stars as Joby Sanchez takes on RFA’s Flyweight Champion Matt Manzanares in a 5-round title fight. Also on the card will be New Mexico natives Abel Cullum, taking on UFC veteran Ulysses Gomez, Brenda Gonzales, Adrian Cruz, Evan DeLong, and Tim Sosa.

Team Jackson-Winklejohn fighter Joby Sanchez will be fighting for the second time in as many months. Sanchez is coming off a big win at Tachi Palace Fights 20 when he Knocked-out WEC and UFC veteran Antonio Banuelos in the second round.

In the fight with Banuelos, Sanchez shook off a rough 1st round as Banuelos was able to get inside the reach of Sanchez. When the second round started Sanchez took over, peppering Banuelos with strong combinations, eventually knocking down the 32-fight vet. But the action was stopped when it looked like Sanchez continuously hit Banuelos in the back of the head with hammerfists. Banuelos was given time to recover and Sanchez was given a strong warning. When the action restarted, Sanchez started where he left off and landed a few good, hard, 3 and 4 shot combos. Banuelos went down and Sanchez jumped all over him. At the same time the referee stepped in to stop the action Banuelos’ corner threw in the towel.

RFA 18 will be co-headlined by Tucumcari’s own Abel Cullum. This will be Cullum’s first fight in three years. He will be taking on UFC veteran Ulysses Gomez. Gomez is coming into the fight on a two fight losing streak, last competing in the cage against Phil Harris at UFC on Fuel TV 7 back in Febuary of 2013. Cullum, also riding a three fight losing streak, will be looking to get back on track and back in the win column.

Tickets for RFA 18 will go on sale on Tuesday, August 12th at www.holdmyticket.com starting from $35. You can also contact your favorite local fighter for tickets. VIP tables are available by calling 505-507-0309.
