Despite facing a taller opponent in Matthew Burton, Garcia used a hard right early in the first round to gain his opponent's attention. Applying pressure throughout the first two rounds, Garcia was able to have the bout stopped in the second round.
Matthew McPhail opened the evening with a referee-stopped-contest (second) over James Quon at 127 pound. Seth Gunn followed that up with a referee-stopped-contest (third) over Mike Nettis at 143 pounds.
The next three bouts were decided by the judges, as all victories were earned by decision. Daryn Nelson claimed a 160-pound split-decision win over Trevor Cook, while Elon Brumfield and Patrick Wanko tallied wins at 180 pounds. Brumfield decisioned Jon Andresen, while Wanko earned the win over Mike Tolzien.
Following Garcia's heavyweight bout, Mike Douglass defeated Robert Steigerwald, when the referee stopped their 162-pound contest in the second round. Gregory Boyadjian picked up a 165-pound decision over Aubrey Aldridge, while Dal David claimed a decision over Kevin Jerde in a 152-pound bout.
Three of the final four bouts didn't reach the final bell, as the referee stopped them all early. Quinton Croff earned a win at 165 pounds following a second-round stoppage against Matt Lundquist, while John Doeseckle also claimed a second-round victory; his over John Pulli at 164 pounds.
