RFA 30 Headed Back Home With Vets

RFA 30

Resurrection Fighting Alliance will return to Nebraska next month with RFA 30.

In the main event, Anthony Smith meets Brock Jardine. Also, Ryan Roberts battles Adam Townsend.

Smith (22-11) is a native of Nebraska and has fought for the UFC, Strikeforce and Bellator during his career.

“I’m super pumped about headlining RFA 30 in front of my fans in Nebraska,” Smith said. “I don’t know any fighters with my kind of support system. You can’t beat 3,000 people. That noise is pretty much a third man in the cage and no one is beating me in Nebraska. I grew up in Nebraska City, I live in Omaha, and I made my pro debut in Lincoln. My fans in all three cities will be there to see me win in devastating fashion on September 18.”

Jardine (12-5) fought twice for the UFC and is 7-0 while competing at 185 pounds.

“I’m very excited to be a part of a great organization like the RFA,” Jardine said. “Everyone knows what the RFA is all about, developing top prospects and getting UFC vets back to the big show. This will be a great fight for the fans, where the winner could very easily punch their ticket back to the UFC. That’s exactly what I plan on doing at RFA 30.”

The main card for RFA 30 airs on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET.
