Ohio’s rising MMA promotion returned on GFL as Ohio Fighting Championship presented “OFC 23” from the Courtyard Columbus West in Columbus, Ohio. MMA fans, this pro/am event featured 9 stoppages in 10 fights! All of these gladiators threw down in the cage for honor, glory and fame!

In the main event, for the OFC Bantamweight Title, Vladimir Kazbekov (6-1) defeated Donny Korbel (9-7) via KO in the first round. Kazbekov began to score early with spinning back kicks and leg kicks as he closed the distance on the taller Korbel. Korbel followed up with leg kicks and punches. Korbel fired off jabs as Kazbekov connected with a looping right hand. Kazbekov landed another big right hand that dropped Korbel. Kazbekov followed up with punches on the ground and KO’d Korbel on the mat to become the new champion in dramatic fashion.

In the co-main event, Will Duffy (6-3) defeated Aaron Garrett (8-6) via unanimous decision in a heavyweight battle. Both fighters landed hard shots throughout the fight. Duffy had more in the gas tank and scored more as the fight went longer. Duffy was exhausted in the final seconds and Garrett scored with punches but it was not enough to overcome what Duffy did earlier in the fight. Earlier in the fight, Duffy got the mount and did damage, but was unable to finish Garrett.

In other action, Josh Hampton (2-0) defeated Donny Wade (0-1) via TKO in the second round. The first round was crazy as Wade got a huge takedown and after a nice scramble by Wade, Wade was able to sink in a guillotine that Wade defended. The fight went back to the fight where they continued to look to finish the fight as they winged hard punches at each other. Wade went for another takedown that Hampton stuffed and pounded away at the ribs of Wade as the round ended. Wade received a cut on his eyebrow during one of the exchanges. In the second round, Wade was exhausted and Hampton took advantage of it by scoring with knees to the body and punches to the head. Wade fell to the canvas where Hampton followed up with punches and finished the fight.

Christ Straight, Dalon Brady, James Taylor, Jake Miller and Mike Dillow all won their fights via submission. Nick Spinks and Joe Pimentel won their fights via TKO.

You won’t find more BANG for your buck so order this thrilling event. Be sure to catch all of the action anytime on VOD as OFC presents “OFC 23” on pay-per-view exclusively at GFL.tv.
