Karakhanyan took control early keeping Palmer on his back foot with a rangy kick game. Palmer hit Georgi with an eye poke that brought in the ringside physician but didn't force the stoppage. Palmer had more success in the second round with a couple of takedowns, but wound up defending submission attempts and was unable to mount much offense of his own. The third round started off as all Palmer. He struggled for a bit to hit the takedown, but once he got it he worked Kharakanyan from back mount. Unable to get the submission. Georgi caught Palmer in a guillotine choke that forced Palmer to submit.
