Following a third-round stoppage from Max Holloway in the main card opener, lightweights Jim Miller and Yancy Medeiros entered the octagon. Medeiros took the fight on short notice, which is difficult for any opponent let alone Jim Miller.

Round 1: Both men started off slow with their striking, but Medeiros was able to land some solid shots to the body. Miller responded with some heavy shots upstairs, but Medeiros continued to hold the center of the octagon and pressed forward with some shots of his own. Medeiros got staggered while attempting a superman punch and Miller immediately responded by pushing him up against the cage. Miller threatened with a deep guillotine choke that Medeiros was fighting hard to stay out of, but he ultimately went unconscious despite his efforts.

Result: Jim Miller def. Yancy Medeiros via submission (guillotine), 3:18 of Round 1
