A middleweight bout took place next as New Zealand native Dylan Andrews took on TUF 17 castmate Clint Hester.
Round 1: Hester came out looking to hit the showers early, rocking Andrews early and continuing to apply pressure. Andrews answered with a takedown where he was able to control Hester. Andrews gave Hester room to get up to try and bait him in to a guillotine. Hester made it out and tried get the time he lost in the round back.
Round 2: Leg kicks made an appearance in the second as they were thrown often from both men. Andrews enjoyed more frequent success on the feet until Hester tackled him to the mat in complete role-reversal of events from round 1. Hester held Andrews down for several rounds and landed shots throughout, even when he gave up his back. Andrews decided to stand up at the expense of several punches to his face. The round concluded with minor shots thrown with nothing of significance landing to either man.
Unfortunately, the fight was called just before the start of the third round due to a dislocated shoulder sustained by Andrews giving Clint Hester the TKO victory
Official Result: Clint Hester Defeats Dylan Andrews via TKO (Doctor Stoppage, Dislocated Shoulder) at 5:00 or Round 2.
