On Friday night from the Hangar at the OC Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa, CA, RFA will be holding their 21st event. RFA has become known over the years at the top developmental promotion for up-and-coming fighters. On any given RFA card, you never know when you may see a future UFC champion in action.

This card is set to be headlined by a lightweight title bout between Zach Juusola and Mehdi Baghdad. Juusola (10-2) will be making his RFA debut and is currently on a two-fight win streak with both victories coming via stoppage. His opponent, Baghdad (10-3), will be making his second appearance inside the RFA cage. He is currently on a six-fight win streak with all six wins ending inside the first two rounds.

Co-headlining the card will be a bout between Joe Murphy and Bruno Frazatto. Murphy (7-1) suffered his only career loss against Carson Beebe at WSOF 3. He rebounded after that defeat to take a split decision victory this past April. Frazatto (6-1) won in his last outing at RFA 17 when he submitted Cory Galloway in the first round.

The complete main card is as follows.
