To kick off the ESPN+ card, Sadibou Sy and Aleksei Kunchenko went the distance in a welterweight matchup. Sy was awarded the victory by unanimous decision, pushing his season total to four points. Even with the win however, the Swede will not advance to the playoffs based on the point total, and the 2021 Semifinal matchups in the welterweight division will see the top-seeded Zeferino against Magomedkerimov, and MacDonald matched up with Cooper III.
Hamlet enjoyed a 128-20 advantage in total strikes landed heading into the third round. However, Cory Hendricks defeated Hamlet by third round submission (4:09) in last night’s action, however the Norwegian advanced in the playoffs since Chris Camozza earned a unanimous decision victory giving him only three points. Since Camozzi did not secure a finish, he was eliminated from playoff contention. As a result Marthin Hamlet has earned a playoff spot. The 2021 Semifinal matchups in the light heavyweight division will see the top-seeded Carlos Jr. against 2019 champion Sordi, and Ferreira versus Hamlet.
