Holm used wrestling skills in addition to boxing abilities, but after exchanges, Vieira’s offense was heavier.
Michel Pereira and Santiago Ponzinibbio held a war in the co-main event. Pereira earned a split decision victory in this bout, but the Argentinian fighter looked surprised.
Chidi Njokuani earned an impressive knockout victory against Dusko Tudorovic just a few seconds before the end of the first round by landing a massive elbow.
