Maia continually took LaFlare to the ground in the card’s main event, and from there, he controlled the welterweight contender for much of the fight. In round five, Maia was clearly exhausted as LaFlare hunted for the finish, but it was too little, too late for the American. Maia was awarded the unanimous decision win.
And in the co-headliner, Erick Silva handed Josh Koscheck his fifth straight loss, as he tapped the former welterweight challenger with a first round, guillotine choke.
