The previous bout between middleweights Kevin Holland and Kyle Daukaus ended in a no contest in the first round after an accidental clash of heads. Holland dropped to the mat but then continued fighting.

Daukaus then ended the bout with a rear-naked choke submission. However, after the referee and officials ringside conferred, they ruled the fight a NC, saying Holland was compromised by the head butt.
