One is a rising prospect. The other is a surging veteran. Both are looking for a marquee win in the main event of RFA 27 – Murphy vs. Brock, which will serve as the headliner of Idaho’s first nationally televised MMA event.
Joe Murphy (136), a Cleber Luciano jiu-jitsu protégé from southern California, hit his mark ahead of his showdown with Boise State wrestling star turned MMA standout Jesse Brock (135.5). In the co-main event, Czar Sklavos (124.5) and Nick Burgos (123.5) both weighed-in comfortably under their mandated flyweight weight requirement.
RFA 27 – Murphy vs. Brock will be televised nationwide on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT. It will also feature a heavyweight war pairing former BYU football star Jan Jorgensen (250) against former Dragon House MMA titleholder Josue Lugo (266). RFA vet Daniel Swain (145.5) meets Boise’s own Scott Thometz (146), BJJ black belt Stephen Martinez (155.5) vs. Judo black belt Darrell Flores (154.4), and Idaho native Miles Hunsinger (171) vs. Utah resident Austin Miller (170).
