The fight started with Oezdemir throwing a clean right to Walker's face. The Brazilian started walking backwards and avoiding his opponent's attacks. Volkan remained aggressive and attacked the Brazilian's head with direct strikes. Johnny saved on attacks and bet on counterattacks. Oezdemir was more aggressive and started attacking the Brazilian close to the bars. Volkan scored with sequences of attacks to the head and waistline. Walker suffered a blow to the rib and was still at a disadvantage. Volkan continued to be a victim of the veteran's actions. Afterwards, an upper hand landed cleanly on Johnny's chin, which knocked him out and collapsed in the octagon.
