Main Undercard 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT (PPV) Live Results:


Deiveson Figueiredo versus Brandon Moreno – Flyweight Championship

Right off the bat in this 125-pound championship bout, Moreno shot in and secured the early takedown. While things would only stay on the ground for a short period of time, this set the pace for things to come as the fight progressed. Both competitors landed strong strikes in the round, but Moreno would secure another takedown and gain a dominant position on the ground before the first came to an end.

In the second round, Moreno would once again go to the takedowns. While he found success in the scrambles and with a couple of sweeps, Moreno did find himself trapped in Figueiredo’s guillotine at one point. He was able to escape, but the threat was very real.

The third round was won by Moreno in dominant fashion. He caught Figueiredo with a bomb of a left hook while moving forward that opened a massive cut under his right eye. This cut, and the swelling surrounding, it, would prove to be the determining factor in the fight.

At the end of the third round, upon the advice of the ringside physician, Herb Dean would call an end to the action, resulting in a TKO victory for Moreno.

Through this victory, Brandon Moreno has once again become the UFC’s undisputed flyweight world champion.

Official Result: Brandon Moreno def. Deiveson Figueiredo via TKO (Doctor Stoppage – Cut from Left Hook) – Round 3, 5:00


Gilbert Burns versus Neil Magny – Welterweight 

At the beginning of this exciting 170-pound matchup, it was clear that Magny would make an attempt at using his size and reach to his advantage. To get past this advantage, Burns threw a right hand and immediately closed the distance. From an inside position, Burns secured the body lock, elevated Magny, and brought the fight to the ground.

From the top position, Burns had no problem passing his opponent’s guard and securing side control. Shortly thereafter, he was able to step over and transition to mount.

From mount, Magny was in big trouble. Burns applied the cross face, isolated an arm, slipped to the side, and began to cinch up the constricting squeeze of a head and arm triangle. Magny had no choice but to tap to the pressure of Burns’s choke.

The story of this one was pretty straight forward: Perfectly executed takedown, beautiful transitions, dominant submission finish.

Official Result: Gilbert Burns def. Neil Magny via Submission (Arm Triangle Choke) – Round 1 – 4:15


Jéssica Andrade versus Lauren Murphy – Flyweight

Throughout the first round of this 125-pound affair, Murphy had no answer for the volume and speed of Andrade’s striking.

Into the second, the trend continued and Murphy knew she needed to get things to the ground, but due to a lack of commitment on her level changes, she fell short on all of her takedown attempts.

Despite Murphy getting battered over the course of the three round fight, she displayed supreme toughness by taking that kind of abuse and continuing to exchange strikes with Andrade.

Official Result: Jéssica Andrade def. Lauren Murphy via Decision (Unanimous) – 30-25, 30-25, 30-26


Paul Craig versus Johnny Walker – Light Heavyweight

Getting things started for the PPV broadcast, was a quick bout at 205-pounds. While both competitors started slow, the end would come fast and furious.

Walker stepped forward and unloaded a front kick to Craig’s chest, but Craig caught the kick. With his leg being held, Walker unleashed a barrage of punches on Craig, the last of which dropped him to the mat. From there, Craig kept a hold of Walker’s leg in a desperate attempt to defend, but it only took a few more shots from Walker to finish the fight.

Referee Marc Goddard stepped in and called the fight off at 2:16 of the very first round.

Official Result: Johnny Walker def. Paul Craig via TKO (Right Cross to Ground Strikes) – Round 1, 2:16
