Resurrection Fighting Alliance Returns Home This September


The Resurrection Fighting Alliance will return home this September for RFA 30, the promotion announced recently.

Set for September 18 from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, veterans Anthony Smith, Ryan Robert and Darrick Minner are all scheduled for action.

Since debuting in Nebraska in 2011, RFA has traveled across 13 stakes and three time zones. RFA 30 will air on AXS TV live at 10 p.m. ET.

“RFA started in Nebraska and a lot of our history happened in the great ‘Cornhusker State'”, RFa president Ed Soares. “I’m happy to announce that we will be bringing the promotion back to its birthplace with RFA 30.”

Smith is a veteran of the UFC and Bellator cages, having posted a 22-11 career MMA record. Roberts owns 21 wins and Minner is 13-4 in his career. It will mark the RFA debuts for both Smith and Roberts.

James Nakashima, who is 2-0 in his MMA career, is slated for action against Kevin Gray. Nakashima was a training partner of U.S. Olympic gold medal wrestler Jordan Burroughs.
