Resurrection Fighting Alliance 14 - Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Event on April 11, 2014 in Cheyenne, Wyoming USA

RFA 14 takes place April 11 at the City of Cheyenne Ice and Events Center in Wyoming and marks the organization’s debut in the state. The main card airs live on AXS TV. In the headliner, Wyoming’s Matt Manzanares (7-2) meets Junior Maranhao (9-2) for the organization’s vacant flyweight title. In the co-headliner, Mark Dickman (8-1) meets Raoni Barcelos in a featherweight title eliminator. “I’m excited to bring the biggest MMA event to the state of Wyoming since UFC 6 went there 19 years ago,” RFA President Ed Soares stated. “Matt Manzanares and Mark Dickman are two of the most exciting fighters in RFA history, and Junior Maranhao and Raoni Barcelos are two of the most talented prospects in Brazil. Manzanares vs. Higo will make an outstanding flyweight title fight, and the winner of Dickman vs. Barcelos will fight for the featherweight title in their next bout. Manzanares, who suffered a decision loss to Zach Makovsky (who later vacated the belt and signed with the UFC) at RFA 11 in his most recent bout, fights for the fifth time under the RFA banner when he meets Maranhao, who is riding a 6 fight winning streak. Dickman, meanwhile, has won three straight fights via knockout and looks for his third win in four RFA fights when he meets Barcelos, an undefeated Shooto Brazil vet who scored a decision win over WEC/UFC vet Tyler Toner at RFA 11. Also on the card, Tyler Voth (5-1) meets Jeimeson Saudino (8-2) in a flyweight title eliminator, and Jocelyn Lybarger (2-1) takes on Rosa Acevedo (1-0) in a 120-pound catchweight affair.
