Main Card Derrick Lewis vs. Aleksei Oleinik Chris Weidman vs. Omari Akhmedov Darren Stewart vs. Maki Pitolo Yana Kunitskaya vs. Julija Stoliarenko Beneil Dariush vs. Scott Holtzman Round 1 - Body kick from Dariush. Eye poke to Dariush creates a pause in the action. Leg kicks are traded when the action starts back and another eye poke occurs as Dariush leans in to punch. Dariush pushes Holtzman against the fence looking for a takedown. Dariush can't finish the high crotch takedown and they battle for positioning. They break, trade punches, and Dariush wobbles Holtzman with a standing knee. Holtzman swings back as Dariush swings to finish him off. Scramble ensues as Holtzman stuffs Dariush and Dariush briefly takes Holtzman's back. Holtzman stands and they move to the middle. Holtzman circles and Dariush picks Holtzman apart as Holtzman attempts to throw back. A SPINNING FOREARM FROM DARIUSH AND HOLTZMAN IS DONE!!!! Incredible finish!
