Jorge Gurgel vs. John Halverson

Round 1
Gurgel started the bout with plenty of low kicks with a few punches from the outside mixed in. Halverson looked to counter, and landed a decent combo halfway through the opening frame. Gurgel worked for a takedown against the fence, and Halverson reacted by pulling guard with a guillotine choke. Gurgel freed his head and pounded from the top position for the rest of the round. 10-9 for Gurgel.

Round 2
A head kick from Gurgel glanced off Halverson's head and glove but it got a nice pop from the crowd. Again, Halverson pulled guard with a guillotine, but Gurgel was free before the fighters hit the floor. From the top, Gurgel teed off and looked close to scoring a stoppage as referee Dan Miragliotta warned Halverson to defend better or get moving. After Gurgel seemingly punched himself out, the fatigued fighter moved to side-control and setup an armbar. Halverson cleared the legs and found himself on top with 15 seconds remaining in the round. He landed some decent shots but it was not enough to steal the round. 10-9 Gurgel.

Round 3
Halverson landed some good leather early in the third, backing Gurgel up with some stiff punches. Two minutes in the stanza, the fighters clinched and Gurgel took the top position after Halverson gave up an easy takedown. Gurgel controlled from the top without inflicting any damage, which prompted the referee to stand the fighters up. Halverson landed another decent punch on Gurgel before time expired. 10-9 Halverson.

The official judges scored the contest, 29-28 (twice) and 30-27, all for Jorge Gurgel.
