Pinedo (who shocked tournament favourite Brendan Loughnane last time out) punched his ticket to the final with a second round TKO over Jenkins. The undefeated Braga meets him after a close decision over Chris Wade.

Silveira and Kasanganay both got finishes last night. Silveira kneed Ty Flores to death and Kasanganay punched out Marthin Hamlet.
