Although the schedule main bout of champ Mike Easton vs. Ryan Diaz was canceled due to illness (Diaz) the solid card provided great submissions and tough-fought decisions.

The man who competed for the UWC flyweight title back in October of 2009, John Dodson, took on Jesse Riggleman who was 9-0 at the time. The chin of Riggleman was to be admired but “The Magician” out of Greg Jackson’s camp proved too much for “The Mountain Man”. All three judges saw each round for Dodson.
