Before the elite 155lbers took to the Octagon, former middleweight champion Sean Strickland and one-time title challenger Paulo Costa failed to deliver upon the bloodbath they promised fans throughout fight week.

Elsewhere on the lineup, Kevin Holland made a successful short-notice return to 185 pounds, Randy Brown made a push for the welterweight rankings at the expense of Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, and Jailton Almeida secured a rebound win following his first UFC loss earlier this year.
