Most of the action took place on the feet with both fighters scoring. Wellmaker found success with some loud and nasty body kicks. Eventually, Wellmaker landed a takedown and got to full mount before Sykes exploded back to his feet.

Not long after, Wellmaker landed his thunderous left hand and the fight was officially stopped at 3:43 of the opening round, which got UFC star Masvidal — the promoter of the event — to his feet.

With the victory, Wellmaker improved to 2-0 with a pair of finishes as a pro following a stellar 9-1 amateur career. Sykes was making his pro debut after a three-fight amateur run.
