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

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.
