It was an exciting night of fights. Chidi Njokuani dominated Melvin Guillard to a unanimous decision  victory. Guillard had little to offer in the way of offence as he struggled to get anywhere near the much larger Njokuani.

David Rikels flat out assaulted Aaron Derrow for just over two rounds before picking up the TKO stoppage. Jessical Middleton’s technical striking proved to be a little too much for Aliice Yauger as she landed clean shots, bloodying up Yauger on her way to a unanimous decision victory.

In the opening fight of the night AJ McKee and Brandon Phillips. Although it was a unanimous decision victory for McKee the fight was actually closer than it would seem. McKee controlled the distance of the fight, but Phillips found his range and put some decent power on McKee, backing him for a lot of the fight. The scores would have been much closer if not for a few key takedowns by McKee in the second and third round.
