NAAFS “Night of Champions 2012” Fight of the year canadate

Dustin Kempf Isaiah Chapman staredown

Dustin Kempf Isaiah Chapman staredown

The NAAFS “Night of the Champions 2012″ Held last night in Medina Ohio at the Medina Community center with a dynamic turn out of very exciting and competitive bouts as amateur belts were on the line.
One fight in particular comes from the main event with the match up between Dustin Kempf and Isaiah Champman.
These two warriors battled from the amazing stare down till the bloody end.
This violent clash of back and forth non stop action from both fighters who clearly had the desire and will to win gave the fans exactly what they came to see, BOOLD AND GUTS!
With Kempf’s gritty smash mouth style and wrestling, Dustin used some very good submission skills in applying the triangle choke in which we thought was the finishing move. Then the heart of Chapman comes though weathering the storm with a spectacular escape.
Chapman had stellar moments backing Kempf up on the cage pouring a barrage of headshots with fist and elbows as the referee looking on for a Kempf response before a stoppage. amazingly Kempf comes back with his own headshots backing the former amateur champion Chapman up putting him on the defense.
At the end of the day, it was Isaiah Chapman’s heart and condition that peered through while stopping an exhausted Kempf in the second in a grueling fight which to many is a strong candidate for the ” NAAFS Fight of the Year”

POPULAR BELLATOR MIDDLEWEIGHT BRIAN ROGERS JOINS FUNDAFIGHTER.COM

Fundafighter.com announced Monday that the latest fighter to join the growing fighter fundraising hub is Bellator standout Brian Rogers and that half of the funds raised by his first campaign will go to improving the technological resources at LEAP, the Ohio-based education center for emotionally and behaviorally-challenged youth that the former special education teacher used to teach at before leaving to pursue fighting full time. The other half will go towards offsetting Rogers’ training camp expenses for his Bellator 78 bout at the end of this month in Dayton, Ohio.

Rogers says that the LEAP program is in desperate need of new computers and that he is hopeful that through fan support and FundaFighter, he will be able to provide the school with the necessary funds to purchase new equipment.

“When I worked for the LEAP program they were very supportive of my MMA career, giving me time off for fights and to train. This year, as much as it was a disappointment, I took a step back from my teaching position at LEAP to focus fully on my mixed martial arts career,” Rogers explains. “My former co-workers are still my good friends and I even have one of my training partners who works for the program. I wanted to do something to give back to them and to the kids, which is why I partnered with FundaFighter to start this campaign.”

“[FundaFighter] provides an opportunity for the fans and Backers of fighters they like or respect to truly support them or a charity or cause that’s important to them,” Rogers points out.” “Most fighters don’t get pay-per-view percentages or ticket percentages from the fans, so in this situation the fans can actually really directly support the fighter. FundaFighter is the voice of the fans to the fighter.”

Raising the bar for Backer incentives, “The Professional Predator,” as he has recently been anointed due to his polished look outside the cage and his gentlemanly demeanor with the press, will be offering his number one fan the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk him out for his October 26 Bellator bout. The unique fan experience will likely make one lucky supporter the envy of his or her friends.

FundaFighter.com founder Robbie Stein says it was Rogers’ enthusiasm for his fighter crowdfunding model and his dedication to providing his supporters unique, valuable rewards like these that made the partnership happen.

“I’m so happy for Brian to be a part of FundaFighter. He is an amazing fighter and person, and his rewards are incredible. He really gets the concept and we’re confident that his campaign for this very worthwhile cause will be a successful one,” Stein says. “We couldn’t be more excited to have him on board.”

Rogers’ campaign will run from October 1 to December 1, with a goal of raising $4000.

Brian is available for interviews regarding his FAF sponsorship and his Bellator 78 bout
