Former UFC talents Efrain
Escudero and Tyson
Griffin will headline the Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s
upcoming fourth event.
Promotion officials recently announced the lightweight bout will
serve as the RFA
4 headliner after Gilbert Yvel,
who was supposed to face Marcio Cruz
in the evening’s main event, withdrew from the show. Cruz will
remain on the bill, now locking horns with Joe Yager on
the main card. RFA 4 takes place Nov. 2 at Texas Station in Las
Vegas and marks the Nebraska-based promotion’s first trip to Sin
City. The show is expected to air live on AXS TV.
In the evening’s co-main event, welterweight prospect Chidi
Njokuani will face “Filthy” Phil Dace,
Paixao meets Lance
Palmer in a featherweight pairing that came about after
original opponents Alessandro
Ferreira and Nick Macias
were scratched from the card due to injury.
Krause and Dakota
Cochrane will also compete that night, taking on Guilherme
Trindade and Derrick
Burnsed, respectively. Additionally, Roufusport prospect
Pettis will see action against Jimmy Jones,
while former NCAA Division I wrestling champion Steve Mocco
makes his pro MMA debut against fellow heavyweight Tyler Perry.
