Ironically, the submision-only Metamoris 2 resulted in only one submission. By contrast, the UFC this weekend had eight.

Quick results:
Kron Gracie beat Shinya Aoki Gracie via Guillotine
Braulio Estima beat Rodolfo Vieira Vieira via Decision
Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu beat Brendan “The Hybrid” Schaub Cyborg via Decision
Mackenzie Dern beat Michelle Nicolini Draw
Andre Galvao beat Rafael Lovato Jr.Galvao via Decision
Victor Estima beatJonathan “JT” Torres Draw
