In the main event, "Relentless" Craig Johnson (5-1, Fit Factory, Sevierville, Tennessee) defeated "The Master of Cool" Kevin Forant (6-2, Hayastan IMB, Charlotte) via TKO slam in a lightweight scrap in the third round. The majority of the fight was Johnson and Forant trading punches in the standup game. In the final round, Johnson looked to utilize his wrestling for the first time in the fight when Johnson scored with some punches then shot in for a takedown as he grabbed Forant from behind. Forant tried to roll to a kneebar but Johnson lifted Forant high up into the air and slammed him down to the mat. Forant injured his leg upon impact and the fight was over. It was a devastating end to a fight that had been back and forth for most of the night.

In the co-main event, with the USFFC Welterweight Championship at stake, Bradley "The Barbarian" Guyer (4-0) defeated Jeremie Holoway (6-2) via rear naked choke in the first round to become the new champion. It was a furious battle as Holoway looked to tie up in the clinch multiple times throughout the fight and use his strength advantage while Guyer countered with knees and punches to keep Holoway at bay. Guyer backed Holoway up into the fence and executed a nice hip toss for a takedown and landed in mount. Holoway scored with punches from the position until Holoway turned his back where Guyer landed more punches before sinking in the fight ending submission in a fast paced fight.

With the USFFC Flyweight Title on the line, Marcus "Little Big Man" Levester (9-7) defeated Christian Patterson (3-4) via guillotine in the first round to win the vacant title.
