The North American Allied Fight Series (NAAFS) returned to GFL.tv with "Combat Challenge 19" at Chapparells Community Center in Akron, Ohio. NAAFS is one of the most prolific MMA organizations in the country as it runs a monthly event in and around the Ohio area. The 12-bout card featured 7 stoppages and was a fast paced event that had fans on their feet several times throughout the show.
In the main event, Josh "The Ox" Lasich (4-0) stayed unbeaten as he defeated Dave Lastafka (6-1) by Achilles lock in the first round of a welterweight clash. Lasich scored early with a takedown and then softened Lastafka's defense by landing several punches. But Lastafka reversed the position with Lasich now on bottom but that was fine with Lasich as he secured the seldom used Achilles lock and squeezed with all his might. Lastafka tapped out giving the victory to Lasich.
In the co-main event, Rachel Sazoff defeated Ronda Gale by unanimous decision of a 120 lb bout. Sazoff landed a takedown in round one but both women got to their feet where Gale worked for a guillotine but was slammed down to the mat by Sazoff. Round two saw some more grappling as Sazoff got another takedown where the fighters traded punches. In the third round, there was more standup early on then at any other time in the fight, but once again Sazoff got a takedown, controlled the ground action and won the round and fight.
With 7 out of 12 fights ending by KO or submission this is an explosive card that will whet the appetite of any MMA fan. Be sure to catch all of the action from this exciting card as NAAFS presents NAAFS: "Combat Challenge 19" exclusively at GFL.tv.
