It's not everyday that you see an outdoor MMA event. This past weekend Resurrection Fighting Alliance 9 happened to fall into that category. Fresh off of TUF 17, Middleweight Kevin Casey earned a unanimous decision nod over Casey Ryan. In the main event Pedro Munhoz and Jeff Curran fought for the vacant RFA Bantamweight title. Munhoz earned a split decision win over Curran to claim the belt. Afterwards Curran (a seasoned veteran of the sport) retired.
