Ago Huskic vs Gabriel Braga was an interesting fight. The two had a pretty good back and forth in the first round, until, Huskic got the back of Braga and was unable to secure the submission. Huskic had a body triangle and was working the rear naked but ended up gassing himself out for the remaining rounds. Braga ended up getting the nod from the judges thanks to his submission defense.

In the first fight of the night, Gozalez vs Ruhil, it was pretty back and forth through the beginning of the first round. Vikas Singh Ruhil was able to land a couple of shots that were immediately retaliated by Gonzalez, who connected with a huge hook that sat down Sing Ruhil. Immediately, Gonzalez got full mount and landed shots until the referee was forced to call it.
