WILD CARD BOUT: Kyacey Uscola vs. Kris McCray
Referee: Steve Mazzagatti
Round 1: Uscola kicks McCray hard in one of his ankles just as the second minute of this round gets started. McCray does manage to rebound a bit with a take down at 1:19, but a knee shot from him results in a low blow, stopping the clock with 2:02 left. With 1:14 to go, Uscola does an arm-drag takedown on McCray, which is immediately followed by a knee lift. McCray responds with a big takedown as only :51 remains on the clock. After hitting Uscola in the back of the head with some punches, he falls way short of applying the rear-naked choke correctly.
Round 2: It only takes :21 for McCray to start the round off with a takedown...and 39 seconds later, HE MAKES USCOLA TAP OUT!

QUARTERFINAL FIGHT #1: McGee vs. Hammortree
Referee: Herb Dean
