The main card was supposed to have aired live in North America on HDNet on Saturday afternoon, but issues with the broadcast forced the network to cancel the live telecast.
The event included the appearance of former TUF 9 finalist Andre Winner as he earned a solid unanimous decision over Diego Gonzalez. While Bellator Season Four welterweight tournament fighter Jim ‘Judo’ Wallhead ended his night with a quick first round TKO victory against Joey Villasenor in just 48-seconds.
