The North American Allied Fight Series will return to Canton, Ohio this October 4th with yet another loaded professional fight card. This will be the promotions fifth event in the Hall of Fame city which also serves as NAAFS home base. “As most NAAFS fans know, I was born and raised in Canton which is regarded as a tough, gritty, blue collar city that loves its sports,” stated NAAFS CEO and Canton native Greg Kalikas. “We usually try to load up these cards when we come to Canton and deliver the most exciting event possible which I believe we will deliver once again. The Civic Center is one of the best arena’s we visit and it should be rocking come October 4th!”
This particular event “Rock N Rumble” will be the leagues eighth annual installment and will feature musical guest Mike Owens performing live during intermission but make no mistake about it, it’s the loaded fight card fans will be in attendance to see this fall. The main event features a rescheduled super fight between former NAAFS champion Cody “The Wolverine” Stevens (11-7) and current champion Frank “The Tank” Caraballo (13-7) who will put his featherweight title on the line. With both fighters having already tasted NAAFS gold, a win on October 4th could propel one of these warriors right back into prominence on a global scale. Regardless of the outcome, this is one fight local fans have been waiting to witness for nearly seven years when both of these fighters were tearing up the NAAFS amateur circuit.
The nights co-main event will be for the prized NAAFS bantamweight crown when former featherweight contender Antonio Castillo Jr. (8-4), drops to 135 lbs to face current champion Bryan Goldsby (18-14). Goldsby has won four of his last five including capturing the NAAFS bantamweight title back in March of 2013 in Canton. Meanwhile Castillo has reeled off four straight wins and six out of seven with his lone loss coming during his title fight with current champ Caraballo. This is another fight with perhaps a bigger prize at the end of the rainbow besides the coveted NAAFS belt.
Rock N Rumble 8 will see the return of Cody “No Love” Garbrandt (4-0) to the NAAFS cage when he takes on the always dangerous Charles Stanford (5-2). Garbrandt has gotten off to a 4-0 start to his pro career under the tutelage of team Alpha Male head coach and former world Champion Urijah Faber who will be in Garbrandts corner in Canton. Many insiders speculate that Garbrandt could be one big win away from a shot with the UFC or another major organization. Stanford will look to steal Grabrandt’s thunder to make his own name on October 4th and has good reason to be optimistic. Stanford has won four of his last five fights with his only loss a decision to perhaps the country’s top bantamweight prospect at that time in Isaiah Chapman. Chapman has since gone on to sign with the World Series of Fighting while Stanford sees this as his chance to put his stamp on the bantamweight division and place his name among the sports elite prospects.
The pro card will also feature a heavyweight collision between NAAFS veterans in former HW champ Big John Hawk (9-5) and former #1 contender Bobby Brents (14-4). This could be a title fight in most situations and the winner may find himself in that position after this crucial NAAFS bout. Both fighters are known for their aggressive styles and great chins which make this a fight no true fight fan will want to miss.
West Virginia’s “Wild Wild” Wes Hanson (3-0), perhaps the Midwest’s top young featherweight prospect, returns to Ohio looking for his fourth straight win to kick off his professional career. Hanson will face Canada’s Matt DiMarcantonio (5-4) who makes his NAAFS debut and looks for career win number six as a pro.
Jeff Hughes (0-0) makes his professional debut against Devon Wilson while RJ Buck (1-0) looks to go 2-0 as a pro coming while posting an impressive 12-4 record as an amateur.

In the main event, Max Cruz (10-1-1) defeated Pheroeun Sok (8-4) via TKO in the fifth round in the finals of the 130lb division to become the 2014 Grand Prix Champion. Cruz used his size advantage, which was substantial, perfectly as he struck Sok from the outside and did damage with brutal knees, elbows, and punches. Sok tried to close the distance and get Cruz out of his game plan, but Cruz stayed true to what he wanted to do which was land combos from the outside and keep Sok at the end of his punches. Cruz landed strikes at will and forced several standing 8-counts for Sok throughout the fight. Finally in the fifth and final round, Cruz scored with several knees to the body that doubled Sok over. After a standing 8-count, Cruz punished Sok some more with punches and Sok was done. Unable to stand up straight and throw a punch, Sok finally fell victim to the accumulation of punishment over the fight. With the win, Cruz punched his ticket to train in Thailand with the world’s best Muay Thai fighters. A once in a life time experience that Cruz earned through hard work and victory.

Bruer scored a solid combo finishing with an overhand right that dropped Park in the final round. When action resumed, Bruer connected with left hooks and even elbows that punished Park even more.

Hard hitting MMA and Muay Thai action returned as WFC presented “WFC 28″ from the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno, Nevada live on the GFL Combat Sports Network. WFC events are premier MMA shows, promoted across the United States as a proving ground for tomorrow’s future stars and established veterans looking to mix it up. This huge card featured several up and coming fighters from the region along with multiple title fights.
In the main event, for the vacant WFC Middleweight Title, Byron Cragg (4-0) defeated Jumoke Hunter (0-1) via triangle choke in the third round. In the first round, it was all striking with Cragg scoring with leg kicks and knees while Hunter managed to bust open Cragg on the forehead with an overhand right. The cut turned into a swollen knot but Cragg showed no signs of it interfering with his fight. Round two was more of the same as he used his reach advantage to continue to score with leg kicks and strikes from the outside. Hunter answered with left-right combos with his fists as he was able to find his mark. Hunter got a takedown in the corner and worked from inside of Cragg’s guard in the corner of the ring until the bell sounded. In the third round, Cragg scored with a right hand that wobbled Hunter and they both went down to the ground where Cragg isolated an arm of Hunter then moved to a triangle choke and got the tapout and with it, the title.
In the co-main event, for the WFC 147 lb Muay Thai Title, John Cabrido (7-2) defeated Willy Wipple (8-5) via unanimous decision after 5 tough rounds to win the title. Cabrido used an aggressive style to dictate the pace, particularly as the fight wore on, and score with punches to the body as well as leg kicks that found their mark. Wipple fired back with hooks and uppercuts, but the volume striking of Cabrido was too much to overcome as he would throw combo after combo. Cabrido damaged the leg of Wipple and it was evident that those strikes took their toll and wore down Whipple and made him an easy target for some of Cabrido’s punches and kicks in the championship rounds.
The WFC Featherweight Championship was up for grabs when Champion Hernan Avila (8-1) defeated Jeremy Caudillo (7-4) via TKO in the first round to retain his title.

Unified MMA returns on GFL with “Unified MMA 20″ from the Mirage Banquet Hall in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This 8-bout card featured 5 finishes and 2 title fights!
In the main event, for the Unified MMA Heavyweight Title, Tanner Boser (6-0) defeated Jordan Tracey (3-3) via TKO in the third round to win the title. This fight had the fans on their feet the entire time. Boser used solid wrestling and grappling on the ground to wear Tracey out, round after round. Boser’s top game was strong and once he got to side control or mount it was one-sided. Tracey worked in Boser’s guard in the first round and that was his best opportunity to do damage as he scored with some ground and pound. Over the next two rounds Boser showed off his wrestling control almost to perfection. In the third, Boser kept up the pace while Tracey was exhausted. Boser landed dozens of punches on top and finally moved to mount where he scored with hammer fist after hammer fist. Boser then threw several hard elbows between the defense of Tracey that found their mark and followed up with more hammer fists as the ref stopped the fight. Both men were exhausted from their effort and Boser showed why he is the #1 heavyweight in Unified MMA and remains unbeaten. Even in defeat, Tracey showed a ton of heart in not giving up when most would have.
In the co-main event, for the Unified MMA Featherweight Championship, Parwez Ghulam (5-1) defeated Bellator and WSOF vet Behrang Yousefi (6-5) via armbar in the first round to win the title.

Ghulam showed off an impressive submission game as he took the arm of Yousefi with no trouble and finished the fight with a damaging armbar.
In other action, WSOF vet Mark Drummond (6-2) defeated Jarid Bussemakers (4-3) via unanimous decision after a tough fight in a battle of huge welterweights. Drummond won the fight with his wrestling as he had Bussemakers on his back for the majority of the fight.
