MEZ Sports presented Pandemonium 8: Swanson vs Hyatt on Saturday, March 23, 2013, at The Fairplex (formerly known as the Los Angeles County Fairgrounds) in Pomona, California.

In the main event, journeyman Kana "The One Man Riot" Hyatt captured the vacant MEZ Sports Flyweight Championship with a third-round submission victory over the previously undefeated "Little" Steve Swanson, brother of top UFC featherweight Cub Swanson. Hyatt has now won back-to-back fights for the fifth time in his pro MMA career, but he has yet to ever win 3 fights in a row.

Other notable winners at Pandemonium 8 were Gladiator Challenge veteran John Robles, Tachi Palace Fights vet Alex "The Decision" Perez, and one-time Strikeforce fighter Dominic "All Day" Clark.
