Joe Stevenson, who claimed the title of Ultimate Fighter during season two, has signed a multi-fight contract with Nebraska’s Resurrection Fighting Alliance. Stevenson will make his debut for the company later this year.
“We are very excited to have him (Stevenson), as he brings a never-say-die, in-your-face approach to MMA that the fans love,” said RFA matchmaker Scott Cutbirth in an interview with MMAValor.com. “He will not be fighting on our March 30 card, but we expect him to be on a card in late spring or early summer.”
Stevenson started his career in the UFC 5-1, securing a shot at UFC champion BJ Penn. Following the loss to Penn, Stevenson went just 3-7 inside the Octagon, receiving his release following four consecutive losses.
Resurrection Fighting Alliance will host a card in March that will feature Houston Alexander and Gilbert Yvel.
