The Absolute Chaos 145 lb MMA Title was on the line with Ivan Salaverry MMA's Emanuel Russell and United Training Center's Bobby McIntyre battling it out for the belt. This fight went all five rounds, the vast majority of it on the feet as both fighters showcased their standup games.

In the end, two of the three judges saw it for Russell who was declared the winner via a close Split Decision.
Get Em UP MMA's Charlando Peoples and Team TAINTED's Brandon Cruz met in a heated 175 lb Superfight grudge match that had the crowd evenly split for who they were rooting for. The first round went to Cruz who was able to control on the ground but in the 2nd round, Peoples took over and started imposing his will. Peoples caught Cruz with a nutshot early on and was given a warning and later had a point deducted for grabbing the cage so that after three rounds the judges had it as a draw. The fight went to a deciding 4th round where again Peoples caught Cruz right in the cup with a big knee. Cruz was visibly hurt this time from the low blow but elected to continue after given some time to recover. Peoples smelled blood though and swarmed Cruz, landing some big punches so that Referee Aric Wiseman was forced to step in and stop the fight at 2:37 of the 4th round.
One of the best fights of the night was a 130 lb Muay Thai bout between AMC's Kha Do and Chanan Bunchaidung fighting under the MABJJ & Team Srisuk/Jones Jr MT banner. The fight was non-stop action as both fighters traded punches and kicks, as well as throwing the other fighter from the clinch.
