Former UFC fighter Eddie Sanchez scored a come-from-behind victory in the opening televised fight over Marcus "Money" Sursa in a heavyweight fight. Sursa had Sanchez near dead to rights in the first round, but was unable to finish. Sanchez survived the early storm, and was actually able to come back to win the first round and then dominated the second round. Sursa was clearly mentally beaten at the end of the second round, but did come out for the final stanza, however, he was only able to last 23 seconds before Sanchez finished him off for good.
