Saturday Augyst 20, 2016— While Miletich was away for his race, INSIDE MMA series host Bas Rutten filled in alongside “The Voice” Michael Schiavello on AXS TV FIGHTS: RESURRECTION FIGHTING ALLIANCE 42. The night’s action featured three stunning submissions highlighted by a high-kick-rear-naked-choke combination by Steve Gruber (6-3).
Between decisions and submissions it was a delightfully full night of MMA at RFA 42!
The RFA 42 card boasted 6 fights and half were left up to the judges, including the main event between Christos “The Spartan” Giagos and Arthur Estrazulas. Giagos came in ready to head back to the UFC, but Estrazulas wasn’t going to let him have the easy finish. Giagos won the fight via unanimous decision, keeping his UFC hopes alive. In the co-main event of the night, Alex “The Decision” Perez lived up to his nickname by taking Ray “The Bloodhound” Elizalde to the end and delivering him his first ever loss via split decision.
Also on the card, Anthony “The Shark” Avila delivered the quickest finish of the night by submitting WSOF & Bellator vet, Cody Bollinger, via guillotine choke less than a minute into round one.
