Next up was a battle between the three division EBI champion Garry Tonon and Kim Terra. There was some serious bad blood coming into this contest, as Terra had threatened the death squad on social media.

After a great scramble, Tonon was able to lock in a very tight arm in guillotine to finish Terra.

The main event of the Studio 540 show was between “The King” Gordon Ryan and Felipe Pena. Ryan has been known for his bottom game and his relentless pressure on the legs. Well, Pena did not seem phased by that one bit, as he worked passes the entire match.

After working his way past Ryan’s legs on a couple of occasions, Pena was able to secure the back and lock in a rear-naked choke to seal the deal in regulation.
