LFA 20 video highlights: Nick Barnes settles for questionable split with Chad Curry


Filed under: AXS TV Fights, News, Videos

Nick Barnes got the re-set on his career he was looking for on Friday night, but he had to be wondering when he realized his fight with Chad Curry was going to be a split decision.

Barnes (12-2) appeared to have handled Curry (9-2) without much concern for what the judges would say, even after he took a year off. But in the end, one of them saw the fight for Curry. Still, Barnes got the nod in the LFA 20 headliner, which took place at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake, Minn. The main card aired on AXS TV.

Check out the main-event highlights above. Additionally, Kelly Kobold-Schmitz (18-3-2) came back after six years away, but had to settle for a split draw with Christine Stanley (5-3-1). An illegal knee cost Kobold-Schmitz a point in their flyweight fight, which led to the draw.

And Travis Perzynski (22-9) battered Carl Wittsock (9-2) on the feet, then headed to the ground to put him to sleep with a rear-naked choke in the first round of their lightweight fight.
