Resurrection Fighting Alliance's next event now has a venue and headliners.

RFA 4 is set for Nov. 2 at Texas Station's Dallas Event Center in Las Vegas, the promotion announced on Wednesday. The event airs live on Fight Now TV.

Headlining the event is a light-heavyweight clash between former UFC fighters Gilbert Yvel (38-16-1) and Marcio "Pe de Pano" Cruz (7-3). A lightweight fight between Tyson Griffin (15-6) and "The Ultimate Fighter 8" winner Efrain Escudero (18-5) co-headlines.

Following a three-fight skid that prompted his exit from the UFC, Yvel earned back-to-back stoppage victories under the RFA banner. Most recently, he delivered a first-round knockout of fellow octagon vet Houston Alexander at RFA 2.

Cruz, a decorated submission grappler, hasn't competed since July 2011, when current UFC prospect Glover Teixeira scored a TKO victory over him at an event in Brazil. The loss snapped a five-fight win streak that followed his exit from the UFC, which came with back-to-back losses to Jeff Monson and Andrei Arlovski.

For the record the Yvel/Cruz fights at 205 - love that matchup!

Glad to see Griffin back at it, I wish him success but Escudero will be a tough challenge for him at this point in his career. Gone are the days when he was barely losing decisions to Edgar and Sherk, but beating everyone else.
