Resurrection Fighting Alliance Acquires Titan Fighting, Including Fighters and AXS TV Deal


With it’s next event right around the corner, Resurrection Fighting Alliance on Saturday announced that it has acquired Titan Fighting Championships.

RFA’s acquisition includes Titan’s fighter contracts, its broadcast deal with AXS TV, and the services of Titan president Joe Kelly.

The deal goes into immediate effect with RFA 4, which is slated for Nov. 2 in Las Vegas, airing on AXS TV.

“I am very excited to be working with the guys at Resurrection Fighting Alliance,” said Kelly. “I really feel like this is a partnership with all the potential for success. We are very like-minded with similar goals. That made this an opportunity I could not pass on.”

The purchase of Titan FC follows another big move for RFA. The promotion in August named Ed Soares, manager to the likes of UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, as its president.

(CORRECTION: RFA 4 was incorrectly noted as being located in Kearney, Neb. It will actually take place in Las Vegas.)
