Tate went for a takedown, but it was stuffed. Tate landed a big time right hand to open the fourth round. Tate did get a takedown and took her back, but Vieira stood up. The judges gave the win to Kelten by decision.
The co-main event saw more action between Michael Chiesa and Sean Brady. The first round was weird as in the first minute, Chiesa got kicked in the nuts to start off the fight while Brady got poked in the eye. Brady eventually got to take him down twice, but Chiesa managed to get back to his feet pretty quickly without taking damage. Brady had a cut under left eye and a bloody nose. In the second round, Brady got a takedown and took his back where he kept him there for the rest of the round. Brady got the decision win.
