On Friday, June 6, Resurrection Fighting Alliance hosted its 15th event from the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City, Calif. The main card aired live on AXS TV.

The night’s main event was a middleweight clash between Kevin Casey and Andrew Sanchez. Casey and Sanchez battled for the promotion’s vacant 185-pound belt.

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

Sanchez, meanwhile, had 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 squared off with Strikeforce and Bellator veteran Ricky Legere Jr.

Also on the main card, Brazilian submission ace Daniel Aguiar locked horns with undefeated wrestling stalwart Sam Toomer at featherweight, Chinzô Machida—fresh off a violent knockout of Brian Wood at RFA 11—returned to take on Russian-born Taekwondo expert Dmitry Gerasimov, also at 145 pounds, and John Hackleman Jr. clashed with fellow unbeaten middleweight Justin Jones.

The six-fight main card aired live at 10 p.m ET.
