Retiring Jeff Curran (@BigFrogBJJ)
The Resurrection Fighting Alliance, a self-described UFC feeder league that recently announced a landmark partnership deal with Adidas, presented RFA 9: Curran vs Munhoz on Friday, August 16, 2013, at the StubHub Center in Los Angeles, California. The main card aired live on AXS TV.

Former WEC title contender and unsuccessful multi-weight-class UFC fighter Jeff "Big Frog" Curran, who had recently stated a desire to make a return to the UFC at flyweight, instead announced his retirement from MMA after dropping a split decision to new RFA Bantamweight Champion Pedro "The Young Punisher" Munhoz.
