On Friday night, Resurrection Fighting Alliance makes its return to the Land of 10,000 Lakes with RFA 24 at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake.

Tickets for RFA 24 are available online at cagetix.com (helps support the fighters) and ticketmaster.com. They also are available from participating fighters and at the Mystic Lake box office. Ticket sales picked up heavily this week, but good seats still remain as of Thursday.

Weighins for RFA's second Minnesota appearance are tonight at Mystic Lake. The fight card features nine professional bouts, plus two amateur bouts kick off the event.

Undercard fights are scheduled to begin at 6:15 p.m. Friday. The main card will once again be live on national TV via AXS-TV. The event goes live on AXS at 9 p.m.

Today Minnesota MMA News breaks down the entire fight card with Driller's Jeremy Bjornberg, who assisted in matchmaking the event and, along with Mystic Lake, was instrumental in bringing RFA back to Minnesota. (Predictions provided by Hawkeye Fighter. He went 10-6 on his RFA 19 predictions at Mystic Lake.)

Amateur undercard

CHARLES ANOZIE vs JAHAN GALEHDARI

Weight class, records: 145; Anozie is 5-2, Galehdari 1-0.

MN state ranking: Both fighters are unranked.

Bjornberg's thoughts: "What an incredible fight to start off the night. Galehdari is the brother of Jamal Galehdari, an undefeated pro from Minnesota. But Jahan looked good in his debut, and he's making a name for himself. He has a great fan base, and I know they'll be jacked up for this. Jahan was rocked in his first fight but survived and got the win. Good ground game, improving on his feet. I expect to see a big step forward from him. He'll need it, too, against a stud like Anozie. Charles is a smooth athlete. He's a solid wrestler, but his ground game is probably his best asset. He's slick on the ground. Charles never seems to get rattled. He's a young prospect for sure."

HF Prediction: I'm a fan of the Galehdari boys and the Minnesota Militia in general. But experience wins in this one. Anozie by decision. Should be a sick ground battle though.

DANA GOSTOMCZIK vs C.T. BAILEY

Weight class, records: 165; Gostomczik is 3-1, Bailey 5-0.

MN state ranking: Both fighters are unranked.

Bjornberg's thoughts: "This is another incredible fight. It's a fight that could seriously be a main event on a lot of shows. Dana has one of the biggest fan bases in Minnesota. He's a monster, cut up, great wrestler and I know he's been working hard. Dana was a three-time state wrestling champion in high school,
