Cody Bollinger defeats Tyson Nam by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)

First round was a kickboxing round, where they traded strikes at range. Tyson Nam dropped Cody Bollinger at one point and it appeared Bollinger was in trouble but he managed to recover quickly. The second round was more of the same as the two traded strikes at range with out much decisive action. The third round was much the same as neither fighter really turned on the offense, but Bollinger did basically nothing. This fight sucked, Nam likely should have won, but he had a chance to really put a claim on this fight and didn't.

In the second round Palomino found his range and began tagging Patino, whose takedowns became more and more desperate.

Prelim recaps:

The preliminary fights air on a live stream on WSOF.com that was absolutely brutal. It was marred by long patches of buffering, awkward hot mic moments, and dirty camera lenses. So to kick off this off is a gif that sums up the majority of fans' experience with this stream.
