A middleweight title clash will headline Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s next event, as Kevin Casey will meet Andrew Sanchez for the vacant belt at RFA 15.
The June 6 event takes place at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City, Calif., and will additionally feature Alan Jouban colliding with Ricky Legere Jr. at welterweight. The evening’s main card airs live on AXS TV and will also see once-beaten James Moontasri take on undefeated prospect Dashon Johnson, while karate ace Chinzo Machida faces Dmitry Gerasimov.
Known for his jiu-jitsu skills, Casey joined the cast of “The Ultimate Fighter 17” last year but came up short at the show’s live finale, suffering a technical knockout defeat at the hands of Josh Samman. Since that setback, “King” has been perfect, outpointing Casey Ryan in his RFA debut before stopping Eddie Mendez this past January at RFA 12.
Sanchez is undefeated through five pro outings and last competed on March 7, knocking out Miles Marshall at RFA 13. That triumph marked the first time “El Dirte” had seen a second round, as the 26-year-old finished each of his first four opponents inside the opening period.
