The Thai fighter tried his best to hang on but received two yellow cards in the third round for excessive clinching. He was also penalized one point in the fifth round for the same offense.

Sinsamut also earned a $50,000 bonus for knocking out the legend.
Result: Sinsamut Klinmee defeated Nieky Holzken via knockout at 1:39 of Round 2

It was an unfortunate end to an action-packed fight, with Miado taking home an important TKO victory regardless.
Result: Jeremy Miado defeated Lito Adiwang via TKO at 2:56 of Round 2

Sato was obviously upset with the decision, but the fight was close and Loman was deserving of the win.
Result: Stephen Loman defeated Shoko Sato via unanimous decision
Amir Khan vs. Ryogo Takahashi (featherweight MMA)
It was insane featherweight action between Amir Khan and Ryogo Takahashi across three intense rounds.

Result: Amir Khan defeated Ryogo Takahashi via split decision
