Nic Herron-Webb of Anchorage successfully defended his Alaska Fighting Championship welterweight title Wednesday night at Sullivan Arena.

Herron-Webb used a head and arm choke to force Fairbanks fighter Collin Reuter to tap out 3 minutes and 39 seconds into the first round of cagefighting.

The victory marked the third AFC title for Herron-Webb, who represents Greatland Martial Arts and Anchorage BJJ. Reuter fights for Team Alpha Male and Frostbite Vale Tudo.

The fight was the main event of a nine-fight card. In the other top-billed fight, Jared Cannonier scored a first-round TKO over Jermaine Haughton.

In the only fight that went the full three rounds, Kerby Coman took a unanimous decision over Casey Water in a welterweight fight.

The next AFC event is Nov. 13 at Sullivan Arena.
