Somehow the challenger survived and came out to take Volkanovski down in the 4th going for another guillotine. Volkanovski fought it off then delivered more vicious punishment to Ortega. Amazingly, Ortega carried the fight to Volkanovski in the last round hurting him with punches but it wasn't enough as the champion took the decision.
The co-main event saw Valentina Shevchenko put on an outstanding performance mixing punches, kicks, takedowns and top control on the ground to retain her women's flyweight title over Lauren Murphy. The end came in the 4th when Shevchenko hurt Murphy with punches then took her down and pounded her until the referee halted things.
