Joe Stevenson, a former UFC title-contender, will take on Dakota Cochrane at Resurrection Fighting Alliance 3 on June 30 from Kearney, Nebraska. The event will stream for free on RFAFighting.com.
Stevenson has won 31 career fights, losing 14 others. Cochrane tried out for the most recent season of The Ultimate Fighter, falling in the first episode that earned fighters a spot in the TUF house.
“This main event has the makings to be the RFA’s most explosive yet,” said RFA matchmaker Scott Cutbirth in a recent press release. “Dakota is a hometown kid with a big following, and he’s excited to take on a championship-caliber fighter like Joe Stevenson.”
Stevenson has not fought since 2011, falling to Javier Vasquez. He won the second season of The Ultimate Fighter, but lost his last four UFC bouts and was released.
