Resurrection Fighting Alliance’s third offering, which will emanate from the Viaero Event Center in Kearney, Nebraska, is now slated to be headlined by a lightweight tilt featuring UFC veteran and The Ultimate Fighter 2 winner Joe Stevenson, who will be taking on recent TUF competitor Dakota Cochrane.
Stevenson (31-14) will step into the cage for the first time since being bounced from the UFC last June. “Joe Daddy” is currently on a four-fight skid, after a loss to Javi Vazquez, he lost his place in the organization he called home since winning The Ultimate Fighter 2 in 2005.
Cochrane who recently posted a dominant victory over former WEC Lightweight Champion Jamie Varner, is coming off back-to back losses, and a a contentious loss to James Vick in the preliminary bouts of the The Ultimate Fighter: Live.
With both men hungry for a win, it promises to be a scintillating affair when both lightweights step into the cage.
RFA 3 is expected to stream for free on RFAFighting.com.
