Jessica Andrade vs Angela Hill
Andrade was the aggressor throughout the bout, and the surging strawweight fired heavy punches at a ridiculous pace. The Invicta champ landed some nice counter punches and knees, however, but Andrade’s pressure ruled the day. After the final horn, there was little doubt that Andrade was going to be awarded the thrilling fight, and that was indeed the case.

Anthony Hamilton vs. Marcel Fortuna
Fortuna gave up a ton of weight in this fight, and the physical difference between the two heavyweights was extremely noticeable. A large gash was opened up over the right eye of Fortuna, not long into the bout, due to an accidental headbutt. Not long after the doctor checked the cut, Fortuna floored Hamilton with a booming right, and that was that. What a UFC debut for Fortuna.
Marcel Fortuna def. Anthony Hamilton via KO (punch) R1, 3:10
Ovince Saint Preux vs Volkan Oezdemir
Oezdemir came out with a steady stream of kicks, and had Saint Preux on the defensive. OSP did manage to tag Oezdemir with some hard lefts, however, that appeared to stun the UFC newcomer. First round was a barnburner. The action slowed in round two, but OSP was the busier of the two and appeared to land more. The light-heavyweights were exhausted by round three, but OSP continued to move forward and outscored Oezdemir on the feet again.
Well, two judges saw the fight differently…
Volkan Oezdemir def. Ovince Saint Preux via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
Abel Trujillo vs James Vick
Vick had a serious reach and length advantage over Trujillo, and attempted to keep the latter at range. Trujillo, meanwhile, looked for takedowns after flurrying in with hooks. In round two, Vick threatened Trujillo with a D’arce for several moments, but was unable to bring about a tap. Not long into round three, Vick cracked Trujillo with a flying knee that stunned the lightweight. Trujillo fired back winging punches, but after the bout stumbled to the mat, Vick sunk in a fight ending D’arce.
James Vick def. Abel Trujillo via submission (D’arce choke) R3, 0:49
Alexa Grasso vs Felice Herrig
The opening two rounds featured striking, and Herrig repeatedly landed her overhand right. Grasso continued to press forward, however, and kept busy with leg kicks. Herrig got the better of the exchanges and scored a takedown to end round two. Grasso picked up the pace in round three, and pressed the action much more. A heated exchange of punches closed out the competitive fight.
Felice Herrig def. Alexa Grasso via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)
Dennis Bermudez vs Chan Sung Jung
Bermudez cracked Jung with a couple of hard right hands not long into the bout. Bermudez attempted to take Jung to the floor, but was unable to. Jung continued to press forward, and proceeded to floor Bermudez with a huge uppercut. After landing a follow up shot, the bout was stopped, although Bermudez appeared to be unhappy about the stoppage. Huge, huge win for “The Korean Zombie”, who was fighting for the first time since 2013.
