Tyson Griffin, who was released by the UFC after missing weight and being knocked out at the hands of Bart Palaszewski this past October, has signed on with the Resurrection Fighting Alliance. Griffin will make his debut later this year for RFA.
His deal was confirmed by RFA officials.
The 28-year-old Griffin sports a 15-6 record but has gone just 1-4 in his last five fights. He had been with the UFC since 2006, facing the likes of former UFC champions Sean Sherk and Frankie Edgar along the way. Griffin has earned wins over Urijah Faber, Clay Guida and Rafael dos Anjos during his eight-year career.
Resurrection Fighting Alliance was founded in 2011 and is based in Nebraska. Such notables as Joe Stevenson, Jens Pulver, Gilbert Yvel and Dakota Cochrane currently call the promotion home.
