Fitch entered the fight as the favorite according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com with betting odds of -200 while Penn came in with odds of +160. Penn came out early and looked for a takedown, which was what many expected out of Fitch. Penn managed to score a takedown in the first round, which was the only major occurrence in the first five minutes.

The second round so a very close battle as Penn scored a takedown, but Fitch reversed it on the ground and got top position. Two judges scored the round to Penn and one to Fitch. The third round was all Fitch, who landed a big right and scored a takedown and followed up with five-minutes of ground-and-pound. Two judges saw it 10-8 Fitch, leading to a 28-28 draw, while the third had it 10-9 Fitch, giving him a 29-28 decision. Because the majority of the vote saw it as a draw, Fitch doesn’t get the win despite having one card score him the victor.

In the co-main event, Michael Bisping (-325) defeated Jorge Rivera by second round TKO. The Brit overwhelmed his trash-talking opponent, using his wrestling and boxing to slowly wear him down before finishing him with a flurry in the middle of the second.

In a big upset, lightweight Dennis Siver (+300) put an end to the winning streak of George Sotiropoulos, earning a unanimous decision win over the Australian native. Siver used his kickboxing and takedown defense to keep his opponent off his game and win the bout on the cards.
