The main event match-up was over quickly as Rafael Carvalho successfully defended his middleweight title against the hometown hero Alessio Sakara with a 40 second knockout in the first round, initially hurting him with a right hand and then following up with punches against the cage until the challenger slumped to the mat unconscious.

Meanwhile, in the co-main event Brandon Girtz also made short work of his opponent Luka Jelcic, flooring him with punches early in the first round of the fight and then landing a couple of ground and pound strikes to complete his KO victory at the 1.57min mark.
