The main event featured James Waller taking on Jimmy Moreno for the vacant light heavyweight title. The first round was a crazy back and forth boxing battle with both Waller and Moreno landing clean shots on the other. Moreno was looking to counter Waller’s punches and as such landed more in the round giving him the round. The second round Moreno switched things up and took Waller down. The entire round was spent on the canvas as Moreno transitioned from side control to mount to back mount. Waller kept trying to escape and toyed with being mounted or having Moreno take his back. Moreno was looking for a rear naked choke but when he couldn’t get it, he threw punch after punch. The third round Waller’s right eye looked nearly swollen shut and was caught with a right hand by Moreno. Moreno either didn’t realize it landed or was trying to set something else up as he didn’t follow. The two set their feet and started throwing. Moreno landed first and it seemed like Waller was going to go down, but then a perfectly placed right hook by Waller sent Moreno crashing to the canvas in a crazy knockout.
The co-main event featured David Hammonds taking on the crowd favorite Quinn Corbett. Corbett had a massive height advantage over Hammonds, but Hammonds immediately closed the distance and took him down right away. Hammonds postured up and started to throw left hand after left hand and Corbett was in trouble and tapped to the strikes.
After the break heavyweights Jeff Szakas and Eric Bucio took the cage. Szakas swarmed Bucio and pressed him against the cage. He was working for a takedown and got it, keeping all of his weight on top of Bucio. Bucio sat up and worked punches to the head of Szakas and after several went through clean Szakas tapped to the strikes.
Todd Wilson and Andrew Munoz were up before the intermission and they put on a fantastic fight. Munoz came out swinging and then shot for a takedown, but Wilson worked for a guillotine choke. It looked tight, but Munoz continued to move and worked his way out. The two stood up and Wilson dropped Munoz, but Munoz was quick to secure an armbar. Wilson stood up, curled Munoz who was on his arm, and then slammed him to the canvas to break the submission. He landed a couple of punches from on top before he stood up. Munoz then took him down and landed in side control. Wilson tried to escape but Munoz took his back and sunk in a fight ending rear naked choke.
The longest entrance award goes to Juan Tapia as his song was over halfway done playing before he came out against Bryan Titus. He also scored one of the fastest wins of the night as Titus immediately shot for a takedown and Tapia grabbed a guillotine. At first it was standing, but then he pulled guard and was able to tighten the choke and force the tapout at 31 seconds into the fight.
A quick bout between Eric Siciliano and Terry Little. Siciliano came out swinging and Little tried for a double leg takedown. Siciliano sprawled and defended then took Little’s back. He threw multiple punches earning the technical knockout.
Lawrence Sieber dropped Chris McDonough at the start of the fight. He pounced and it looked like the fight was going to be stopped, but the ref let the fight continue. McDonough and Sieber clinched and worked knees. McDonough took Sieber down and then worked punches. He took the mount and threw punch after punch. Sieber didn’t defend and the ref stopped the fight.
Andrew West came out swinging against Trevor Relyea and didn’t let up until the fight was over. West quickly charged Relyea and landed punch after punch. He threw a knee that looked clean, but Relyea said it was low and a time out was called. After the restart West continued to throw punch after punch. Relyea tried to take the fight to the ground, but West reversed. The two stood up and West again charged Relyea working punches against the cage. Relyea ducked down for a single leg, but West got his arm around the throat of Relyea and squeezed. Relyea gave a thumbs up, then his knees buckled and the ref stopped the fight.
Bit of a controversy between Augie Rodriguez and Robert Little. The first round Rodriguez took Little down and worked small punches from side control. He got too top heavy and Little was able to roll him over and worked on top. Little tried for a keylock to finish Rodriguez off, but it wasn’t there. Little was too high and Rodriguez was able to sweep him. Little gave up his back and Rodriguez finished the round with punches. The second round Little came out with a front kick and Rodriguez caught it and took him down. They got back up, but again the fight went to the ground. Rodriguez was working for a kimura or a straight arm armbar and Little started yelling while trying to muscle his way out. He did it a couple of times and the ref took it as a verbal submission and called the fight.
Kicking off the night of action was Jason Crose taking on Gilbert Grappling’s Justin Hughes. The two were quick close the distance and started throwing right hands at each other. Hughes ducked under and picked Crose up, slamming him to the canvas. He moved from side control to mount and threw a couple of punches. Crose tried to escape by giving up his back, but Hughes unloaded a flurry of punches forcing the ref to stop the fight.
