The Brazilian saved his attacks, while the North American scored with attacks on the Pará base. With a minute gone, Figueiredo received a direct hit from his opponent, but was unfazed.

In the second round, Garbrandt opted for a straight fight. Deiveson closed the distance and managed to get a takedown on his opponent. The Brazilian was looking for transitions for an eventual finish. With just over a minute left, Figueiredo managed to get to the back and started attacking with ground and pound. Cody got in front and Deiveson hit the katagatame. Garbrandt tried to resist, but the Brazilian pressed. The moment was dramatic for the North American, but the former bantamweight champion continued to resist. Halfway through the stage, Cody managed to get rid of the position, but the man from Pará continued to have an advantage. Mounted, Deiveson did not allow his opponent to stay on his feet. Near the final minute, Garbrandt tried to get up, but Deiveson managed to get to his back. The Brazilian secured the rear naked choke and, with pressure, forced his rival to tap at a disadvantage.
