LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Resurrection Fighting Alliance (RFA) president Ed Soares has revealed the new main event for the promotion’s first trip to Texas. The change came when the original headliner Joe Gigliotti was signed by the UFC. The new main event of RFA 41 will feature an explosive middleweight showdown between Josh Clark and Trevin Giles. RFA 41 – Clark vs. Giles will take place Friday, July 29th at Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas. The entire main card will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.
“RFA is proud of Joe Gigliotti and we look forward to watching him succeed in the UFC,” stated Soares. “RFA 41 will now feature a new and equally exciting middleweight headliner. Josh Clark vs. Trevin Giles is a main event that Texas fight fans will love. I am thrilled to be bringing the RFA to San Antonio on July 29th.”
Tickets for RFA 41 – Clark vs. Giles are available for purchase NOW at Cowboys.ApexTicketing.com or you can support your favorite fighter by purchasing your tickets through CageTix.com/RFA.
Clark (9-2) brings a wealth of experience with him heading into his RFA debut on the marquee. “The Hillbilly Heartthrob” gained notoriety as a cast member on the nineteenth season of the UFC’s hit reality show The Ultimate Fighter (TUF 19). In the tournament, he submitted eventual RFA title challenger John Poppie via Triangle-Armbar. The Kentuckian was then edged out by TUF 19 light-heavyweight champion Corey Anderson via Majority Decision, but Clark is now back to his winning ways as a middleweight.
Giles (6-0) is a dynamic 23-year-old Texan that has finished every man put in front of him. The highly-touted middleweight prospect was unfazed by the change of opponents and has the same goal in mind when he headlines the first RFA event in his home state of Texas. Giles is eager to welcome Clark to “Alamo City” and bring a whole new meaning to the Battle of the Alamo.
The co-main event of RFA 41 will feature a high-stakes featherweight war between a former RFA lightweight title challenger and a seasoned MMA vet from the Amazon region of northern Brazil. Jamall Emmers (9-3), who fights out of Pinnacle MMA in southern California, is coming off an action-packed lightweight title challenge in the main event of RFA 38 last month. Emmers stepped up on a week’s notice and took RFA lightweight champion Thiago Moisés into the fifth round. The fight impressed UFC President Dana White, who was sitting cageside for the event.
Emmers will return to his former residence of San Antonio to face Rivaldo Junior (15-5-2), who is a native of Manus, Brazil that now calls San Antonio home. The longtime Brazilian veteran of MMA has fought professionally for over 10 years. He has fought for prestigious Brazilian promotions Jungle Fight and Shooto Brasil and at one point had a fight scheduled with Raoni Barcelos, who is currently the reigning RFA featherweight champion. Junior looks to make his long-awaited international MMA debut in a bout he hopes will take him one step closer to finally challenging his fellow countryman Barcelos.
The full RFA 41 fight card and further information regarding this event will be announced soon. RFA 41 will be the promotion’s first event to take place in “The Lone Star State” of Texas and it will be the sixteenth state that the RFA has visited. The entire main card of RFA 41 – Clark vs. Giles will be televised live and nationwide on AXS TV at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT on Friday, July 29th.
