UFC vet John Gunderson signs three-fight deal with Resurrection Fighting Alliance
Another veteran lightweight has joined the ranks of the upstart Resurrection Fighting Alliance.
A promotion official today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that John Gunderson (34-14) has inked a three-fight deal with the promotion.
Gunderson is expected to fight in the next RFA event, which is targeted for October in Las Vegas and will stream live on Fight Now TV. A date and venue have yet to be finalized.
Gunderson fought earlier this month in his home state of Oregon at "Caged Combat 6" and suffered a fourth-round submission loss to David Castillo.
The setback snapped a promising two-fight streak with wins over UFC vets Justin Buchholz and Karo Parisyan.
An opponent is not yet finalized for Gunderson's debut.
RFA also announced Tuesday that longtime manager Ed Soares has taken the role of the promotion's president.
Additional talent featured on the October event includes Tyson Griffin, Sergio Pettis, Gilbert Yvel, Chidi Njokuani, Chris Holdsworth, Bubba Jenkins and Lance Palmer, RFA matchmaker Scott Cutbirth previously told MMAjunkie.com.
