The event was announced during the Legacy 40 broadcast on Friday night.

“We’ve been broadcasting MMA on AXS TV for over a decade and this is one of the biggest events in our history of combat sports,” said Andrew Simon, CEO of AXS TV FIGHTS. “I have been looking forward to the day AXS TV promotions would work together to promote an all-star card like this. RFA versus Legacy features three title fights including the much dreamed about champion versus champion match-up. Thank you to the fighters, RFA and Legacy for making this historic night come together.”

In the main event, RFA flyweight champion Alexandre Pantoja will meet Legacy flyweight champion Damacio Page and the winner of the fight will be awarded a superfight title belt. In addition to the superfight, the promotions will also have two title fights on the card as Luke Sanders will defend the RFA bantamweight title against Terrion Ware and Dave Burrow will face Mike Bronzoulis for the vacant Legacy lightweight title.

“Working with Andrew Simon and Mick Maynard, we will produce the first true promotion versus promotion MMA show and Superfight,” stated Ed Soares, President of Resurrection Fighting Alliance. “Alexandre Pantoja versus Damacio Page is an exciting pairing for the inaugural AXS TV FIGHTS Superfight title, and I am eager to see how Luke Sanders handles his first ever bantamweight title defense against a dangerous Terrion Ware.”

“We are excited to be a part of a series that is the first of its kind,” said Mick Maynard, CEO of Legacy Fighting Championship. “Both of our organizations have been instrumental in catapulting fighters to the next level in their careers for the last several years and this will be an even more entertaining and unique way to continue that legacy. Many have talked the talk, Legacy and RFA will now be walking the walk.”
