RFA 16 RESULTS: Josh Copeland Wins Vacant Heavyweight Title in Denver on AXS TV - 7/25/14



The Resurrection Fighting Alliance presented RFA 16: Copeland vs Jorgensen on Friday, July 25, 2014, at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colorado, near Denver. The main card aired live on AXS TV.

In the main event, undefeated hometown fighter Josh "Cuddly Bear" Copeland won the vacant RFA Heavyweight Championship with a first-round knockout of the previously unbeaten Jan Jorgensen. The RFA is an official UFC feeder league, and 6 out of their last 7 champions -- Kevin Casey, Brian Ortega, Pedro Munhoz, Zach Makovsky, Mike Rhodes and Sergio Pettis -- have all signed to fight in the world's leading MMA promotion. Given the current sparsity of the UFC's heavyweight division, Copeland and his impressive 9-0 record will likely be the next RFA champion to be called up to fight in the big leagues.
