MMA isn’t only taking place in Boston this weekend. In fact, just 40 miles west from where the last major MMA event was being held, just 6 days later, Resurrection Fighting Alliance will be holding their 9th event. And WOW….is it a good one. When you go down the list of fights put together for this event, you can definitely understand why Scott Cutbirth was appointed as RFA’s match maker.
RFA 9 takes place tomorrow, August 16, 2013 in Los Angeles, California at the StubHub Center. The Main Card starts at 10pm EST and studs a better than average Main Event. The main event features a bantamweight championship bout between Jeff Curran (35-15-1) vs. Pedro Munhoz (8-0) for RFA’s vacant bantamweight title.
Curran, a much experienced veteran, has competed against some of the best the game has to offer in his career in the UFC and WEC. Curran has gone toe-to-toe with the likes of Uriah Faber, Scott Jorgensen, Mike Brown, Joseph Benavidez, and Takeya Mizugaki and stood his ground in the process. Out of 35 victories, 19 of those victories come by way of submission.
Munhoz, on the other hand, is a fast rising star. An RFA veteran in the 5th and 8th installment of the promotion, has 5 of his 8 victories by way of submission and no blemishes. Oh, did I forget to mention? He also trained out of the Black House and Kings MMA.
As for the rest of the card, here’s the rest of the main card that will flip the switch to beast mode tomorrow night:
Kevin Casey (5-3) vs. Casey Ryan (5-0)
Brian Ortega (6-0) vs. Jordan Rinaldi (6-1)
Steve Mocco (2-0) vs. Lew Polley (12-4)
Alan Jouban (6-1) vs. Chris Spang (5-2)
Matt Manzanares (4-1) vs. Steve Swanson (10-1)
Justine Kish (1-0) vs. Christine Stanely (1-0)
RJ Clifford (4-2) vs. James Moontasri (4-1)
Nick Jordan (2-1) vs. Perceu Friza (1-0)
And I was writing this, I got word that all fighters are on weight. This card full of wicked prospects is on. One thing that I absolutely appreciate about this promotion, is they proudly accept their role as a company who builds prospects, and you should appreciate it as well. It’s that type of attitude that will give them longevity.
RFA 9 can be seen tomorrow night on AXS TV at 10pm EST
