Renato “Babalu” Sobral (c) vs. Gegard Mousasi

Babalu flinched at the pyro during his ring entrance. He decided not to risk getting engulfed in flames, and ran to the cage.

Round 1: Both men touched gloves to start the fight. Both men got in the clinch early on, and Mousasi took the fight to the ground. He started landing some big shots on Babalu and was wailing away on him. One of his right hands knocked Babalu right out, and the referee was quick to stop the bout just over a minute into the bout.
