The Resurrection Fighting Alliance has been forced to shift around RFA 7 after illness knocked out Leandro “Batata” Silva. Filling in for the Brazilian against Brandon Thatch will be Mike Rhodes. RFA officials notified MMAFrenzy of the change on Wednesday evening.
Mike Rhodes is currently undefeated in his four-fight MMA career and will look to stay that way after stepping up on short notice for Silva, who was scratched due to a leg infection. The Roufusport prospect will take on hometown standout Brandon Thatch (8-1) in the AXS TV main event.
RFA 7 will take place March 22 at the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colorado. The card will air on AXStv starting at 10PM.
