This Friday Night on AXS Tv two of the top mixed martial arts promotions in the world will collide in a series of cross-promotional bouts. The Ressurection Fighting Alliance fighters will take on the best talent that Legacy Fighting Championships have to offer.

Here is the SciFighting.com breakdown of the professional main card bouts to be offered:

Beginning the night will be a battle of Flyweights as Kevin “Pocket Herc” Gray (5-1) of RFA goes up against Brian Hall (7-3) representing team Legacy. “The Law” Hall has only one win coming by way of decision and in his last bout he was knocked out by the “Team Captain” of LFC, Damacio Page. Brian will look to bounce back to secure a possible rematch with “The Angel of Death.” Bounce back just like Gray did after he dropped his professional debut to win 5 straight.

Then a pair of welterweights take the stage as former UFC competitor Yuri Villefort (6-4) will look to snap a 4 fight losing streak against “Prime Time” Adam Townsend (12-3). Adam has won 6 straight bouts, 5 of which have came by submission.

Another welterweight attraction will come after when American Top Team’s Bojan Velickovic (10-3) will represent RFA against Charles Byrd (6-3) of LFC. Bojan won his last RFA contest and Charles “Kid Dynamite” has won his last two Legacy bouts.

Perhaps the most explosive match-up of the night will pit Legacy’s lightweight bombers against each other as Dave “The Duke” Burrow (13-5) will opposite Mike Bronzoulis (17-8-1). Burrow is coming off the most impressive win of his career after he armbarred Anthony Njokuani at LFC 38 in the 3rd round. He’s riding a 5 fight win streak and all 13 wins of Dave’s career have come by some form of stoppage. Bronzoulis only has 2 wins in his career coming by decision and he will look to win his third fight in a row on Friday night.

The Co-main event will feature RFA’s speedster bantamweights when  undefeated “Cool Hand” Luke Sanders (9-0) will come against “Flash” Terrion Ware (13-3). Luke and Ware are a combined 5-0 in RFA events and will look to keep their “0” and further establish themselves as the pinnacle of the Resurrection Fighting Alliance bantamweight division.

Then in the main event of the evening RFA’s Flyweight Champion Alexandre Pantoja (15-2) will go head to head with Legacy’s Flyweight Strap holder Damacio Page (19-9). Alexandre is a 6 Shooto Fight veteran and he acquired the RFA Flyweight belt in his last outing by rear naked choking long time RFA veteran Matt Manzanares in the 2nd round at RFA 18. Damacio “The Angel of Death” has 8 fights under his belt under the Zuffa banner (WEC/UFC) and after 3 straight stoppage victories in Legacy, he was awarded a title shot. Page went on to knockout former champion and Bellator veteran Brian Hall in a single round at LFC 36.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
