It’s co-main event time, and it features Derek Brunson against Brazilian Roan Carneiro – a heavy-hand jiu-jitsu dude.
Brunson sports a wrestling background, but he isn’t too keen on falling into any submission traps, so the takedown must come on his terms. After a period of feeling out, Carneiro whiffs badly on a right hand, and when Brunson ducks under the Brazilian is off balance and falls. From there it’s all about Brunson raining down punches – lots and lots of punches, because referee Keith Peterson is amenable to stopping the bout until someone slips into unconsciousness.
Carneiro eventually does.
Result: Derek Brunson def. Roan Carneiro via TKO (Punches) at 2:38, R1
