After Legacy FC 46's last fight on the card where Steven Peterson and Irwin Rivera had a very exciting back and fourth match, fight fans walked home satisfied. Both men had their moments where Peterson was stronger in grappling while Rivera was much faster with the strikes knocking down his opponent a couple of times. However, Peterson came to fight and he almost always was advancing forward exchanging and scoring takedowns. A close fight in my eyes, but the judges gave it to Peterson via unanimous decision.
Rafael Lovato took Kevin Holland down to the canvas early where he ended the fight via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:24 of round one.
