Cedric Katambwa against Austin Wourms never really got going as Wourms was the victim of a low blow that ended the bout 53 seconds into the contest. Aupuni Pagaoa utilized a heavy body attack through the first round to open up Humberto Duarte to right hook, one punch knockout. An Tuan Ho reenforced his top prospect status hitting Edwin De Los Santos with every kick you could think of and secured two takedowns for the decision win.  The battle for the vacant Lightweight title was non-stop action for as long as it lasted. JaCobi Jones & Jean-Paul Lebosnoyani got right after it. Jones put Lebosnoyani on his back fending off constant submissions while slicing open Lebosonoyani up with elbows. The ref would stop the fight in the second round due to Lebosonyani being a bloody mess. Jones has cut his opponent open in three place on his face to force the stoppage and claim the vacant LFA Lightweight title.
