Congrats to Randy Vera (4–3–0), for his beautiful 2nd Round submission victory over Mitchell Hale (4–1–0)! It was a great fight with a close and exciting first round. Victory came at 4:15 in the second round after Randy performs a text book belly down armbar from the guard, forcing Mitchell to tap after repeated hyperextension of the arm.
