A dazed Ferreira quickly stood on his feet to protest the stoppage, however, it was Nicaragua’s Morales who walked out of la jaula with the victory.

The referee stepped in to stop the fight.
Also, Ruelas finished off the former undefeated Aguilar with a spectacle of a head kick. After a few exchanges, the right timing Ruelas connected. Aguilar took time to get up after the kick but was attended by the medical staff.
