Opening up the main card is Paddy Pimblett who returns to the cage for the first time since losing in a lightweight title fight against Soren Bak in 2018. He’ll face late notice opponent Decky Dalton who received the call up after Italian fighter Davide Martinez was unable to travel.

Round 1: Decky Dalton opens up with a left hook that knocks back the head of Paddy Pimblett. Pimblett lands a one-two before Dalton throws a kick and slips. Pimblett follows him to the mat, immediately jumps to the back and locks up the body triangle. He’s working for a choke but Dalton is doing a good job of staying in this fight. “The Baddy” postures up and begins unloading ground and pound. The referee gives Dalton every chance but ultimately has to step in to save him.
