Glover competed against Korea’s own Wan Gi Chae in a 154-pound grappling bout. The two went the distance and the bout ended in a draw.

The main event at Battlefield saw Igor Svirid take on Joe Ray. Svirid took home the win with a first round submission.

The most notable name on the card was co-main event fighter Sarah Kaufman, who secured a unanimous decision victory over Jessy Rose-Clark. This was the Victoria, B.C. native’s first bout and first win since being cut by the UFC in December 2015.
