Co-Main Event – Featherweight (145 lbs) Fernando Padilla (10-1) vs. Talison Soares (9-2)

Round One: The two fighters are feeling each other out with a lot of low kicks, but Soares begins to lead with his hands. Soares has taken Padilla’s back and they might get stood up if nothing happens from here.

Round Two: They touch gloves and Padilla needs to be more aggressive as he leads with his jab but gets pressed against the cage by Soares. Padilla is extremely wiry for his height and has put Soares in what can only be described as some rubbery positions. Soares has an arm triangle in, but instead of continuing to circle for the finish, he takes the mount position, confusing everyone in the crowd.

Round Three: Soares increases the pace, but closing the distance on the much taller Padilla might has been a problem until that single leg into half guard. Soares has taken Padilla’s back, but Padilla has excellent hand control, as he’s shown throughout the fight every time he’s been in this position.

Padilla has now taken the top position but is reversed by Soares. This one goes to the judges.

Your winner by unanimous decision, Talison Soares

Main Event – Welterweight (170 lbs) Curits Millender (13-3) vs. Nick Barnes (12-2)

Round One: They touch’em up and feel each other out. Millender lead with an uppercut followed by a low kick, the height difference could be a factor against Barnes, but only time will tell. Barnes lunges in with an overhand left but doesn’t connect. Barnes lands a kick to the body and an overhand left followed by a left hook, but takes a kick to the groin and the momentum has stopped. Barnes takes down Millender against the cage and is looking to work the ground and pound.

Round Two: Barnes leads with leg kick and after a few exchanged, Barnes is now poked in the eye allowing Millender to slow the momentum again. Barnes takes cage control but Millender escapes looking for a knock out with an uppercut that he missed again. Millender lands a big kick to the body and is finally able to gage his distance, landing a head kick that knocks out Barnes!

Your winner by KO at 2:51 of the second round, Curtis Millender!
