    Top 5 Pound for Pound fighters in AFC.

    5. Padraig McMullen LHW - Quite possibly the best Muay Thai fighter in MMA, his clinch is on stoppable, the only thing slowing this man down is his lack of a ground game, during many of his fights he would knock the man down with vicious knees but then struggle to finish him off.

    4. Chino Avante MW - AFC Grand Prix fight of the night winner and current MW champion Avante took it to his opponents. Part of probably the greatest fight in AFC history Avante isn't afraid to get fancy with his striking, landing flying knees like jabs.

    3. Alex Wilson WW - Deadpool choked his way to the top, making all 3 of his opponents scream for mercy. In the cage this man goes for the throat, literally and has a bright future ahead of him.

    2. Jimbo Gash HW - Jimbo rolled through out the HW division with 3 KO's, 2 in the 1st round, one in only 20 seconds. The man may have the deadliest hands on the planet, from internet sensation to AFC champion Gash is sure to sell tickets.

    1. Callum Correll LW - his devastating kicks demolished the LW division on his way to the top, ending up with 3 1st TKO's. While his ground game has yet to be seen his kicks have the power of a HW.

    Unhappy with first fight

    In an interview The Don said he is really not happy with his performance. "I just didn't get into my game. I usually try to use my punches and my strenght to win. But Chino was a very strong competitor but I really didn't hit anything. I have to train some more, but I'm confident that I can win and fight a lot better than this. At least I showed how tough I am. Chino hit me pretty hard and I still managed to fight him off for a while."

      Pyro sees potential in his performance
      "You know, usually I try and draw the fight out. Win by points or pull my opponent's arm out of its socket. I'm an MMA purist," states the native Italian, an accomplished practitioner of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

      "I don't believe in just coming out swinging. But that first fight... winning that quickly, it was a thrill. It felt natural. Of course, I lost almost as quickly in my second outing, so I need to improve some facets of my game. But it made me think."

        American Fighting Championship and ESPN have agreed in principle to a 1 year deal for having a 2 hour show every Tuesday night. The AFC has named this simply fight night, a huge step for the sport of MMA and the AFC organization.

                  "Deadpool Wilson calls out Penn, Avante in post-fight interview"

                  Alex "Deadpool" Wilson called out Kani Penn after defeating in the title match, saying Penn was "unsportsmanlike" in his post bout comments. Wilson later stated that

                  "anytime he wants to step in the ring again, im ready. He had a gameplan, he was gunna come in and make me tap and beat me on the ground, but i fought his style, and the better fighter came out on top. I bet you all didnt expect to hear the master on hte ground got submitted by a striker. Anytime he wants a rematch, he knows where I am."

                  Wilson, a renowned trash talker in the sport, loves getting inside his opponents head. And he certainly backs up his talk. His victory over Penn was nothing short of impressive. Speaking of impressive, Wilson later stated that he would not be intimidated by stepping into the octagon against fighters from higher weight classes. Wilson stated

                  "yeah, I'd fight someone bigger then me. I mean, come on, the bigger they are the harder they fall. I don't back down from anyone. I mean, who is the middleweight champion right now? Avante? he sounds like e mexican breakfast. Get him on the phone, tell him i wanna fight him once Im finished with Penn."

                  Needless to say, this brash young fighter certainly can talk the talk, and walk the walk.

                    Jakob Finch Post-Bout Interview

                    Jakob Finch was recently asked to comment on his 2nd round loss to Tim Smith in the AFC Grand Prix. When asked, he replied:

                    "yeah, I mean its unfortunate, but I give credit where credit is due, and he came out and just fought the better fight. I expected more from myself, but there is always a next time, and I'm sure that I'll see Tim Smith in the ring again before too long."

                    Finch was also asked to comment on his teammate and training partner Alex "Deadpool" Wilson's recent comments concerning both Kani Penn, and Middleweight champion Chino Avante. He responded with

                    "ha ha, did he say that? Well, that's Alex, get used to it. He's a bit of a joker, but when he chirps he chirps. And he can back it up, thats the worst part. The guy has never been knocked out. I have been training with him for over 2 years, and I've never seen him go out. That's the worst part about his chirping. There is nothing worse then a guy who talks smack and then backs it up. But you know, that's Alex, and God help the guy who is on the other end of his fist."

                    And when questioned about his reported feud with fellow lightweight Callum Correll, Finch responded with

                    "Who, Callum? nah, no feud. That's just some bogus rumour put out there by some bull**** reporter trying to fuel a grudge match. I fully respect Callum, he's a great fighter. Do i think I can beat him? Hell ya. But that's my attitude concerning anyone. Callum is a good fighter and an even better guy. No hard feelings there at all"

                      Penn reacts to Wilson
                      "I'm ready for a rematch, anytime, anywhere. That belt should be mine, he got lucky. So Wilson, if you really think you are up for another fight then you got one."

                          Finch Says He's Ready For Havok

                          The Wonder From Down Under isn't nervous entering his next fight, he told reporters after a short training session today. He stated

                          "I'm ready for it. It's a big fight, but im gunna rebound strong from my last loss and i'm gunna come out strong and he's gotta know i'm gunning for him at this point. He's a good guy, but once i step into that octagon, It's all wonder, Jakob Finch is no more. We fight similar styles, so I'm just gunna go in there, do what I do, and let the best man win.

                            "Marcus Mack? Who?" This was the reaction of the champion shootboxer from Amiens, France after the announcement of the roster for Fight Night this week. "He's just another obstacle. 5 minutes. That's all I'll need."

                              Crayne Calls out McDonald

                              In a heated interview conducted by ESPN reporters, Australian AFC welter weight fighter Jayson Crane has called out his upcoming opponent Alex McDonald.

                              "The Frenchie? What kind of a dumb ******* nickname is that," said Crane.

                              "Just let that wimpy *** Canadian ******* try and take me down on fight night. If he thinks that is what's going to happen then he has got another thing coming because I am going to beat the **** out of him."

                              These words are certainly heated and borderline inappropriate, but they certainly do make for some good smack talk pre-fight. Crayne is expected to win the fight within 2 rounds by knockout.
