It only took two minutes and fifty seven seconds of the first round for Espinosa to land a right hook which knocked down Bagangao. The referee called a stop to the fight as he deemed Bagangao unfit to continue.
Espinosa took home cash prize and gift certificates from UFC Gym Philippines. Fist fighters Jan Kenneth Menia (win by TKO in the 2nd round) and Jovan Espinosa (loss by Unanimous Decision) also fought in this event.
