Two MMA newcomers kicked off Friday’s LFA 14 event, but the one who flew under the radar got the victory.
Featherweight Courtney King (1-0) spoiled the heavily marketed debut of Colbey Northcutt (0-1) – the older sister of UFC fighter Sage Northcutt – after getting the fight to the mat and forcing a stoppage via ground and pound.
Check out the highlights above.
LFA 14 took place at Arena Theatre in Houston, and the main card aired on AXS TV.
Also on the card, two inaugural champs were crowned. In the headliner, Eryk Anders (7-0) became the middleweight champ after a back-and-forth fight with Brendan Allen (7-2) that ended in a unanimous-decision victory. Additionally, Roberto Sanchez (7-0) became the flyweight titleholder after tapping out Jerome Rivera (7-1) in the third round.view original article >>
