In a lightweight matchup, four-time RFA veteran Dakota Cochrane (13-3) survived a near finish in the early going to battle back for a submission win of his own against Team Alpha Males's Derrick Burnsed (10-3).
Both fighters were aggressive to open, including a series of leaping techniques and big punches that narrowly missed. Burnsed then moved inside and grabbed a guillotine and fell to guard. The choke looked tight, and there were several tense moments, but Cochrane eventually poked his head free and looked to land shots while avoiding armbar attempts from underneath.
Cochrane eventually scrambled to the back of his opponent, and while he was too high to finish the choke, he slid off the back and smoothly transitioned into a fight-ending armbar.
