The welterweight title bout between champion Michiel Opperman and Dino Bagattin was a scintillating display of pure MMA. Opperman attempted to take the fight to his traditional strength, the ground, on numerous occasions, but the challenger was well prepared and defended smoothly. Over five rounds Bagattin tore the champion apart, landing uncountable elbows. By the end, both were bleeding heavily and Bagattin was undoubtedly the new champion. We have no doubt Michiel will be looking for a rematch and to take back his title.
