In the main event, Chad Kelly defeated UFC vet Ryan Madigan via TKO in the third round. Both men set a blistering pace the first round with Madigan throwing heavy leather, but leaving himself open, while Kelly was connecting with short counter punches that found their mark and staying compact. In the second round, Madigan connected several times with low kicks, but Kelly remained composed and would land the straight right hand that buckled Madigan and made him step back and regain his balance as well as giving Madigan a small mouse under this left eye. Later in the round, Kelly started to open up with more combos that included knees to the body of Madigan as well as head kicks and low kicks. In the third round, both men fired off combos at one another and kept up their fast pace. Madigan scored with a nice lead low kick that gave Kelly pause and disrupted his attacks. Kelly followed up with a knee to the face of Madigan as Madigan continued to hone in on the low leg kick and hurt Kelly with it several more times. Madigan continued to fire away body kicks and low kicks when Kelly scored a short left hook that wobbled Madigan and hurt him. Kelly followed up with more punches and a knee as Madigan fell to the mat. Madigan rose to his feet and they continued to throw down until Madigan fell to his knees with what looked like an arm injury of some sort, possibly a separated shoulder. The ref called a halt to the fight after that as Kelly won a great fight.
In the co-main event, UFC vet Jason Dent defeated Marwan Jaber via majority decision. This was a close fight and both fighters deserve credit. Dent displayed some great defense at times, but Jaber was relentless as he kept coming forward and throwing punches in bunches. Dent picked his sports more and showed off some solid boxing skills while Jaber used more kicks. In the end, it was a great co-event that was constant action for 5 full rounds.
In a heavyweight pro fight, Ilir Canolli defeated Marven Lemock via KO in the first round showing off dynamite in his fists.
