The night’s main event was scheduled to take place for the AFC’s vacant welterweight title between Tyler Milner and Charlie Johnson for the belt but the fight was scrapped due to weight cutting issues for Johnson.

The promotion announced that veteran commentator Kevin Avellar will be stepping away from the promotion after 15 years with them. Notoriously known for his strong accent and unique “ahmbah” calls on the broadcast, Avellar thanked the crowd and their promotion for the years they worked together. In honor of his final card promoter Sarah Lorimer, best known as AFC Sarah joined Avellar for multiple fights on the broadcast call up until the main event. Avellar would go on to mention that he doesn’t believe his time with the promotion is over, it’s just being put on the pause.
Alaska Fighting Championship will return on March 27 at Alaska Airlines Center in Anchorage, Alaska. Also included during the broadcast at AFC 145 was an announcement that AFC will have one event per month for the next two years that will be streamed live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.
Promoter Sarah Lorimer did discuss Charlie Johnson’s weigh cutting issues, acknowledging that he had to be carried into the weigh-ins on Tuesday night and it was at that moment that she decided Johnson would not be on the card. Lorimer would go on to say that she wishes nothing but the best for Johnson’s recovery.
