Marcos Vinicius took home Knockout of the Night for his comeback win over Wagner Campos on the Facebook-aired portion of the preliminary card. Vinicius rallied from a two round deficit with a mean barrage of strikes in the third round that backed Campos up and eventually put him out on his feet. The fight marked Vinicius' UFC debut.

Also making his debut in the UFC, Rodrigo Damm bounced back from a two-fight losing streak and earned Submission of the Night honors all at once with a first-round rear naked choke victory over Anistavio Medeiros.
