Monday March 2, 2015– Alaska’s #1 MMA promotion returns to GFL as Alaska Fighting Championship presents “AFC 114” emanating from the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage, Alaska on March 4. MMA fans, this pro/am card is stacked featuring the top up and coming prospects inside the state of Alaska. AFC is the premier MMA organization in the Last Frontier State with several alums moving on to the UFC and AFC continues to produce high quality MMA events comparable to any regional organization across the U.S.
In the main event, for the AFC Featherweight Title, Champion Cameron “The Last Samurai” Crawford (8-3) battles Gracie Barra product Nick Novelli (3-0). Cameron has won his last 3 fights and done so in impressive fashion finishing all 3 via KO or TKO. Crawford has never been stopped and his only losses have come via close decisions. Look for Crawford to come out wanting to bang with Novelli. If Crawford connects early and often, it could be a short night. Novelli comes into the undefeated after winning a close decision in a #1 contender’s bout in his last bout. His first fight he dominated and ended the fight with a TKO in the second. Novelli is a well-rounded fighter and looks to shock the audience and shake up the division and he has the skills to do it. Don’t blink as these two are ready to put on a fight of the night performance.
In other action, the long-awaited return of heavy-handed Garage Crew’s Mike “The Cannon” Fannon (10-3) as he takes on up and coming submission specialist Martial Art Alaska Alaska’s Jeff “The Sandman” Sanderson. Fannon is on a 2-fight win steak, both by first round stoppage and is looking to make it 3 in a row. Fannon needs to be quick on the attack. Sanderson is a strong wrestler who finds himself already in the thick of things in AFC after only 2 pro fights. Sanderson is a blue chip prospect and a win over the durable Fannon will skyrocket Sanderson into title contention sooner than later.
The ladies will return to the AFC Cage in this much-anticipated 155lb match up against boxing power house, Denali Barnett vs. Jennifer “The Gypsy” Johnston. These women are 2 of the most feared women in all of women’s MMA in the lightweight division. With the sport of WMMA growing every day, the winner of this bout could easily find herself in Invicta or Bellator before the end of 2015.
You won’t find more BANG for your buck so order this thrilling event. Be sure to catch-all of the action LIVE on March 4 as Alaska Fighting Championship presents “AFC 114” on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv and at www.fightbookmma.com
