The former GLORY Light Heavyweight champion was back in action.

In the main event, Artem Vakhitov put on a masterful performance in front of a home crowd. It was Vakhitov's first fight since he captured the GLORY Light Heavyweight title against Alex Pereira and his first fight since being cut from the GLORY roster not long after. Pascal Toure did enough to keep the Russian fighter at bay in the beginning, but once the bell to the second round rang, the former GLORY champion couldn't be stopped. Vakhitov showcased his wide repertoire of boxing techniques while mixing in flashy kicks, making it hard for Toure to find his rhythm. After three rounds, all judges scored the bout in favor of Artem Vakhitov.

Dmitriy Menshikov, one the world's top Welterweight and a stablemate of Artem Vakhitov took on Mehran Mohammadnia. He struggled with Mohammadnia's unorthodox style in the opening round, but once he found his target and scored the first knockdown it was obvious the Iranian fighter couldn't hang with Menshikov. Two knockdowns later, the referee had seen enough, declaring Dmitriy Menshikov the winner via TKO.
