Resurrection Fighting Alliance and Legacy Fighting Championship are merging in 2017

The two leading feeder organizations to UFC and Bellator are merging in 2017.

Resurrection Fighting Alliance and Legacy Fighting Championship have established themselves as the top breeding grounds for fighters trying to make their way to the UFC or Bellator. In 2017, however, RFA and Legacy FC are going to merge operations to form Legacy Fighting Alliance.

Officials from RFA and Legacy FC announced the merger on Monday.

“This is an exciting day for everyone involved,” RFA President Ed Soares said. “What our two companies have accomplished individually is remarkable, but the sky is truly the limit when you consider what will come next.

“Our athletes will have an unrivaled platform to compete in front of a nationally televised audience – not to mention in more than 40 countries around the world – and prove they are worthy of a spot at the sport's highest level. Our existing companies have placed more than 100 fighters in just the UFC and Bellator, alone. Quite simply, for the fighters on our roster, the future is now.”

Legacy Fighting Alliance will officially launch in January 2017

But it does seem like a money grab for Ed Soares.....
I remember him years ago having issues with money with some of his fighters.
