(LW) Billy Evangelista vs. Mike Aina
Rd. 1 – Evangelista and Aina both land a few kicks and jabs that excite the crowd. After a few slow moments Evangelista shoots in for a single leg and drives the Hawaiian up against the fence and lands some knees. Aina pushes off and lands a few shots of his own before Evangelista comes in and puts Aina up against the fence for a second time. The round ends with the two men trading standing elbows and an inadvertent low blow to Aina that does minimal damage.
