Bruno Souza secured the biggest win of his professional career over MMA legend Wilson Reis in our CW 173 San Diego main event!

The 29-year-old delivered a measured performance, outpointing an aggressive Reis who managed to drop Souza in the second round, earning him a solitary round on the scorecards.

In our co-main event, the judges’ scorecards were needed once more as Javier Garcia edged Roberto Hernandez in a split-decision affair. The two fighters may not have settled their grudge match, as controversy followed the decision.

The Fight of the Night undoubtedly belonged to Damon Wilson and Brandon Carrillo, who kept the fans on their feet throughout their three-round battle. It was ‘The Nomad’ Wilson who secured the victory with a comfortable points tally after a gruelling fight.

Xavier Vines also emerged triumphant thanks to the judges, delivering an impressive performance to bounce back in our featherweight division.

The only finish on our main card came courtesy of Magomed Bayduev, who showcased his Chechnyan wrestling skills on his way to a rear-naked choke submission!

On our prelims, Sean Rose put on a dominant display to pick up his first win in the Yellow Gloves, creating a feel-good moment on the card.

Anthony Desilva delivered what may go down as the ‘Performance of the Night’ with an incredible knockout, welcoming fight fans to ‘The Matrix’ with his spectacular knockout!
