Fabinski wasted no time in tying to dragging the fight to the ground, but absorbed an elbow that opened a cut near the back of his head and had him bleeding profusely in no time. Though Stewart occasionally threatened with guillotines and kimuras, Fabinksi shook it off and went on to control Stewart on the ground.

The judges scored it 30-27, 30-26, and 30-26.

The fight was originally supposed to be scheduled for UFC London, but travel restrictions forced the card to be postponed. This card was almost postponed as well, but as president Graham Boylan explained during the broadcast, the fighters and staff wanted the show to proceed.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.
