Miesha Tate and Cat Zingano put on a back fourth war to earn the Fight of the Night award. It wasn't until the closing minutes of the fight that Zingano was able to put the finishing touch on her performance with a series of knees that caused the stoppage. Travis Browne looked like he'd be fighting off his back as he defended the takedown from Gabriel Gonzaga. Instead, he blasted Gonzaga with elbows that dropped the former contender. In the opening fight of the night, Daniel Pineda recovered from a two fight losing streak by torquing a kimura that forced Justin Lawrence to tap.
