NAAFS "Caged Vengeance 14" Report
Photos by Chelsea Henrie
NAAFS Caged Vengeance seemed a doomed card with injuries, fighters having to pull-out and other headaches. However NAAFS was able to pull off the card anyway, in fact a pretty exciting card. They were able to get Chaz Holloway on short notice to take on Wes Hanson in the main event and it turned out to be a very good fight and a great test for Hanson in his pro debut. In the other pro fight, Kyle Rozewski got back on the winning track with a very impressive win over Rhett Northcraft. Every fight was ended inside the distance with some really nice submissions. In fact, after a TKO in the first fight, every other fight had a submission ending including big wins for Mario Micale and Katlyn Chookagian.
