Edgar (24-11-1 MMA) entered the contest looking to snap a two-fight losing skid, this after suffering back-to-back knockout losses to Marlon Vera and Cory Sandhagen in his most recent efforts. Prior to those setbacks, ‘The Answer’ was coming off a split-decision win over Pedro Munhoz.

Meanwhile, Chris Gutierrez (19-4-2 MMA) had most recently competed back in March of this year, scoring a second-round TKO victory over Danaa Batgerel. ‘El Guapo’ had gone 6-0-1 over his last seven appearances ahead of tonight’s event.

Tonight’s ‘Edgar vs. Gutierrez’ bout resulted in a violent first round finish for Gutierrez. ‘El Guapo’ was able to connect with a standing knee that sent ‘The Answer’ crashing to the canvas in a state of unconsciousness. Check out the finish here.
