In the main event, Paige VanZant took on Michelle Waterson. Both fighters went to the center of the octagon feeling each other out. Waterson took VanZant to the mat, Michelle took advantage and made her way to her back locking up a body triangle and started working the submission. Paige tried to defend herself trying to move the arm away from her neck. Michelle continued to sink in the choke adjusting her grip, Paige did not defend the choke and the ref saw enough. Michelle defeats Paige by rear-naked choke in the first round.

In the co-main event, Mickey Gall took on Sage Northcutt. Right away the fight became a grappling match Gall was dominating Sage on the mat for most of the round. In the second round they started trading strikes and that’s when Northcutt opened Gall up but a left hook from Gall hurt Northcutt and that’s when he took the fight to the mat. Gall took Northcutt’s back locking up a body triangle and looking for the rear-naked choke. Despite Gall not able to get his forearm under Northcutt’s chin, Sage tapped and Gall won by rear-naked choke.
