Referee: Dan Miragliotta
After getting knocked down and losing the first round, Bryan Battle comes back in the second round and submits AJ Fletcher.

Once Battle stuffed it, they engaged in a clinch, which is when Fletcher dropped Battle with an elbow to end the round. In the second round, Battle controlled his range much better and capitalized. He got Fletcher to the ground and started to feel more comfortable. Battle sunk in the rear-naked choke for a massive win over a tough Fletcher.
Result: Marina Rodriguez def. Michelle Waterson-Gomez via TKO. Round: 2, Time: 2:42.
Division: Women's Strawweight
Referee: Kerry Hatley
Marina Rodriguez had the most dominant win of her career against a durable Michelle Waterson-Gomez. The devastating knees and elbows were the story of this fight, as the referee could have stopped the fight in round one. Rodriguez connected with a few slicing elbows, making things really bloody for the "Karate Hottie." After the 10-8 round by Rodriguez, she continued to dominate the fight to the point that Kerry Hatley had no choice but to stop the fight. Rodriguez gets back into the win column after losing two in a row and now holds two wins over Waterson-Gomez. In her post-fight octagon speech, she called out Tatiana Suarez for her next fight.
Result: Bryce Mitchell def. Dan Ige via unamious decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)
Referee: Mark Smith
Bryce Mitchell returns to the win column after dominating Dan Ige over three rounds in the co-main event. The constant pressure and aggressive pursuit from Mitchell was too much to handle for Ige. The wrestling exchanges favored Mitchell, and it paid dividends. Ige had his fair share of moments, but not enough to win this one. "Thug Nasty" was sharp and resilient throughout the duration of the fight. Mitchell has now improved to 16-1 and 7-1 in the UFC.
Result: Mateusz Gamrot def. Rafael Fiziev via TKO (injury). Round: 2, Time: 2:03.
Referee: Herb Dean
It was a disappointing end to the main event after a great first round between Rafael Fiziev and Mateusz Gamrot. The lightning-quick combination of punches to the body from Fiziev was mesmerizing in the first round as he looked sharp. Gamrot was on the defense for the majority of the round until he shot in for a takedown at the end of round one. It appeared that Fiziev had knocked Gamrot off-balanced, but all was good to end the round.
To start the second round, Gamort aggressively goes in for a takedown and causes a huge scramble. Fiziev does a great job of avoiding the ground and engaging in a clinch battle. After Gamrot let go, Fiziev threw a kick, and his left knee (his planted foot) gave out on him. It was clear something was wrong, and Fiziev went straight down. Herb Dean immediately calls the fight off, and Gamrot emerges victorious due to injury. It was a brutal way to end an incredible night of fights, as the main event was bound to be great, with some of the best Lightweights in the world going at it.
