Nebraska-based Resurrection Fighting Alliance has made a big push to sign highly touted prospects as well as UFC and even WEC and Bellator veterans. Their company President is Ed Soares, and this November they'll be making their Las Vegas debut at Texas Station Hotel and Casino with an absolutely stacked card for a small-time promotion. The main event features PRIDE and UFC veteran Gilbert Yvel against Marcio Cruz, the co-main event is former UFC fighters Tyson Griffin vs. Efrain Escudero, and highly touted prospects Sergio Pettis and Bubba Jenkins also are scheduled to compete. RFA made their card official yesterday, and below is their full fight lineup.

Gilbert Yvel vs. Marcio Cruz
Tyson Griffin vs. Efrain Escudero
Fredson Paixao vs. Alessandro Ferreira
Toby Imada vs. James Krause
Chidi Njokuani vs. Phil Dace
Dakota Cochrane vs. Derrick Burnsed
Sergio Pettis vs. Jimmy Jones
Bubba Jenkins vs. Jimmy Spicuzza
Lance Palmer vs. Nick Macias
Chris Holdsworth vs. Tyler Shinn
Steve Mocco vs. Carl Postma
Gregor Gillespie vs. Joey Angelo
Derek Bohi vs. Tyler Perry
Cory Galloway vs. Jerry Shapiro

RFA 4 will air live on Fight Now TV (time TBA) on November 2nd, the day before World Series of Fighting and Strikeforce: Mir vs. Cormier take place. It's plenty of quality MMA to fill part of the 1 month gap without a UFC show from UFC 153 to the next FUEL card. This is definitely one of the deepest regional events I can think of and there are so many fights I'd definitely watch, especially the progression of Jenkins and Pettis as the potential next generation of MMA stars.
