Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) returns to AXS TV tonight (October 9, 2015) with an intriguing main card packed with prospects and is headlined by two title fights featuring several UFC and Bellator veterans.
The event will take place in Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the main card — airing at 10 pm EST — will be headlined by a welterweight title bout between Strikeforce and UFC veteran Bristol Marunde (16-9) and Gilbert Smith (11-4).
Also on tap will be a women’s strawweight title bout between Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger (5-1) and Zoila Frausto (12-4) where the winner could be earning a shot in the UFC women’s 115 pound division. Last but not least, a middleweight clash between Gabriel Checco (8-2) and Mike Jasper (9-2) will be a featured bout of the evening
