In the night's co-main event we were treated to some lightweight talent as Devonte Smith fought Joseph Lowry. The knockout was reminiscent of what Travis Browne did to Josh Barnett and Gabriel Gonzaga with those same elbow strikes in a pair of heavyweight fights. He has yet to have a fight last longer than 96 seconds, however, and he hasn't demonstrated that he has developed the wrestling and grappling ability necessary to become a true mixed martial artist.

Meanwhile, Alex Gilpin put away J.R. Coughran with a slick D'arce choke to put a stop to the contest in the second round.
