KEARNEY, Nebraska — Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) announced in early March that they had signed former NCAA Division I national champion wrestler turned undefeated MMA fighter Bubba Jenkins to a 6-fight deal. Now they have announced who he will be facing in his promotional debut.
His opponent will be none other than Jesus Adame, who is pretty much a living legend in the combat sports scene of southwestern Kansas. This is a man who has basically been boxing since he was able to climb in a ring and has over 280 amateur and junior boxing fights to his credit.
ATLANTA -- In a decorated career in the boxing ring, Paul Williams picked up three belts and the nickname, "The Punisher." Now, Williams has a bigger fight ahead.
After a Sunday morning motorcycle crash near Atlanta, Williams is likely paralyzed from the waist down.
Manager George Peterson told News 12 that he's in the hospital with a surgery scheduled for Wednesday. That surgery will help to stabilize the healthy upper half of his spine by putting a protective wall around it.
