Antoine Knight showed more grit than he should have as Adan Ortiz proved his mettle at Featherweight with a technically proficient, explosive performance, showing that he could take some heavy shots as well as dishing them out as he scored a fourth round TKO.

Frank Scalise landed a vicious left hook at will until he put away the hapless Justin Gauthier at the end of the first round.
