Karlos Vemola didn't have a very good first round, but took advantage of an opportunity early in the second and latched on a rear naked choke to get the tap at 1:07. Massenzio controlled the first by mixing up his grappling and striking effectively. After landing a nice combination early, Mazzenzio decided to drop for an unsuccessful guillotine and it spelled doom for him. Vemola took his back, laid some heavy leather on him, and picked up the submission victory.

Vemola threw wild punches and some awkward kicks early in the opening round while Massenzio looked for a takedown. Vemola stuffed it, and went back to more traditional leg kicks. Massenzio landed a nice knee in the clinch, and connected with a solid left. Massenzio went for antoher takedown, but fell right into a guillotine. It looked fairly deep, but Massenzio was able to pop out and tried to work in half guard. Mike landed a couple of glancing elbows, but Vemola got back to his feet. Massenzio landed the same nice left hand again, and used a front headlock to transition to the top position. Massenzio looked for a north south choke, but Vermola nicely used the cage to push out of it. Vemola landed a big slam to end the round.

Massenzio landed a combo just seconds into round two, and Vemola responded with a big right. Massenzio dropped for a guillotine, but Vemola reversed and went for a peruvian necktie. He jumped on Mazzenzio's back, landed some very heavy punches to the head, and locked up a rear naked choke. Mazzenzio tapped quickly.

Vemola picks up his first win at middleweight, while Massenzio might be looking at a second release from the promotion.
