(January 17, 2013- Dallas, Texas) AXS TV will kick off its 2013 LIVE mixed martial arts coverage at 10pm ET this Friday night with “AXS TV Fights: Resurrection Fighting Alliance 6” from the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri. The event is the first of more than 35 AXS TV Fights LIVE broadcasts scheduled for 2013.
In the main event of the evening, rising star James Krause (18-4) looks to run his winning streak to seven in a row when he meets Toby Imada (30-17) in a battle of lightweight contenders. Krause is trying to avenge a submission loss he suffered to Imada in 2010 at Bellator Fighting Championship 14. Imada was a two-time tournament finalist in Bellator and posted a 7-3 record with the promotion.
In other action, UFC veteran Brock Larson (35-7) will meet Eduardo Pamplona (15-3) in the co-main event and The Ultimate Fighter veteran Dakota Cochrane (13-3) will take on Devision “Dragon” Riberio (23-7).
