Rinaldi Returns to RFA, steps in for UFC signed Dashon Johnson at RFA 15
Resurrection Fighting Allicance (RFA) has announced that featherweight, Dashon Johnson, has signed with the UFC and will no longer be participating on the RFA 15 card on June 6, 2014.
With Johnson now off the card, in comes a true veteran of RFA, Jordan “All Day” Rinaldi. “All Day” has competed on three previous RFA events (3, 5, and 9) and is no stranger to RFA’s bright lights. Rinaldi will look to even up his record within the organization, having gone 1 – 2 in his previous RFA appearances.
RFA 15 will be headlined by Kevin Casey VS Andrew Sanchez for the vacant RFA middleweight championship, and features an expected nail biting fight card action leading up to it.
Moontasri vs Rinaldi will be featured on the live AXSTV portion of the event along with the rest of the main card.
