The scheduled for five rounds championship bout ended early. Perez did land a kick and threw a couple of punches, yet Figueiredo practically stalked him around the cage to get a hold and ultimately submit via guillotine choke at 1 minute and 57 seconds into the very first round and that was it.

With the win Deiveson Figueiredo updates his record to 20-1 and secures the fifth win in a row. He makes the first successful defense of his belt, after winning a vacant title via first-round rear-naked choke submission of Joseph Benavidez in their rematch this past July.
