Juliana Pena wins by T/KO (+462) A women’s bantamweight bout saw Julianna Pena return from a major knee injury against Milana Dudieva, and she looked awesome.

Ron Stallings wins by decision (+350) The first fight of the night saw Ron Stallings take home the win over Justin Jones by unanimous decision. Stallings had never won a decision in his career up until this fight, so it was surprising that he was able to get the nod on the judges’ cards, but that’s exactly what happened. Because of his history of finishing inside the distance, the prop on Stallings by decision was undervalued at +350.
