Resurrection Fighting Alliance has revealed the plans for its 15th event on June 6.

The promotion will head to Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City, Calif., and host a middleweight clash between Kevin Casey and Andrew Sanchez. Casey and Sanchez will be battling for the promotion’s vacant 185-pound belt in the night’s top billing.

The UFC and Strikeforce veteran Casey is a BJJ black belt under Rickson Gracie. Casey has earned back-to-back wins under the RFA banner over Casey Ryan and Eddie Mendez to earn his shot at gold.

Sanchez, meanwhile, has also picked up two straight wins inside the RFA cage. He demolished Todd Meredith at RFA 11 in November and then dominated Miles Marshall in March. The Missouri-based fighter has finished all five of his wins.

In the night’s co-main event, former welterweight title challenger Alan Jouban will square off with Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Ricky Legere Jr.

Also on the main card, two-time taekwondo national champion James Moontasri takes on active professional boxer and unbeaten mixed martial artist Dashon Johnson in a lightweight affair, Brazilian submission ace Daniel Aguiar locks horns with undefeated wrestling stalwart Sam Toomer at featherweight, Chinzô Machida—fresh off a violent knockout of Brian Wood at RFA 11—returns to take on Russian-born Taekwondo expert Dmitry Gerasimov, also at 145 pounds, and John Hackleman Jr. clashes with fellow unbeaten middleweight Justin Jones.

A preliminary card match-up between Kyra Batara and Rosa Acevedo has also been announced by the promotion. Additional bouts for the event are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.

The RFA 15 main card will air live on AXS TV on Friday, June 6 beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
