AFC 19: Ford, Ronson Pick Up Titles, Starnes Defeats Fellow UFC Vet Hague
By FCF Staff
Aggression Fighting Championship held it’s latest event last night in Edmonton, Alberta, which saw Bellator vet Ryan Ford win the welterweight championship in the headliner, by submitting Mike Hill. The fight didn’t end until the final minute of the fifth round.
In the card’s other championship fight, Jesse Ronson tapped out Shane Campbell to take the lighweight belt, in what was the latter’s first title defence.
Despite giving up approximately 50 pounds, Kalib Starnes worked his way to a unanimous decision win over fellow UFC vet Tim Hague. Starnes, who has competed at middleweight throughout much of his career, moved up to heavyweight for the bout.
