ELVIS LYON vs. ALEX MARTINEZ
The wily veteran Elvis “Back From The Dead” Lyon is looking to show the crowd he still has some fight left in him in this one and why he is not willing to hang up his gloves, but the younger fighter Alex Martinez quickly gains the upper hand here with a takedown of Lyon. The veteran Lyon is unable to withstand the rookie’s punishing blows and is KO’d in the first round. Winner: Alex Martinez

MIGUEL TOCK vs. GREY PATINO
Round 1 is underway in this 150 pound division match and Tock scores a takedown out of the gate and mounts Patino. The fighters scramble positions and stand back up. Tock is on top and scoring and in control for most of first round. Tock uses his cage experience and finishes on top after Round 1.

Round 2: gloves are touched and Patino is showing better defense against the cage, but Tock’s ferociousness is too much for Patino and he gets mounted again. Then, the momentum shifts when the fighters are stood back up and Patino takes down Tock, slamming him down to the mat with authority! Tock seeks an arm bar as the second round draws to a close.

The third and deciding round is underway and Patino catches a kick to the ribs but is able to ride Tock down and gains top control. Patino keeps his base and holds Tock down for most of the final round, but will it be enough to sway the scorecards? This fight goes the distance. Official Unanimous Decision: Winner Miguel Tock

CHRIS ROBINSON vs. NATHAN BERNARD

Bernard comes out swinging for the fences in Round 2, hoping to land a hay maker and end this fight. Robinson gains control in the ground game, but they are stood back up. Robinson delivers punishment via ground and pound and Bernard is in trouble, but the second round bell saves Bernard before Robinson could finish with the rear-naked choke.
