Alaska's brawniest homegrown fist-slingers unleash fury on well-matched opponents during AFC 98, a thrilling 10-bout event of hard-hitting fights. A battle three years in the making headlines the evening’s card, as AFC champion Brian Ryan defends his heavyweight title against No. 1 contender Bryc Palmer in one of the most highly anticipated fights in AFC history.
In a second title bout billed as a co-main event, Tommy “Potbelly Assassin” Ide—who tamed Tommie “The Tornado” Matthews with a first-round TKO at AFC 97—exchanges haymakers with Andy “Tankmode” Enz. That matchup stems from a challenge issued by Enz, who broke his arm on UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter television show and has returned home to Alaska to prove he still knows the state anthem. Before the main events, the arena will quake with at least eight other intense bouts, including a bruising waltz between female combatants Nikki “Knuckles” Knudsen and Megan Smith.
