A right knee accommodated by the Quebecer led him to victory. Piechota then went to the mat. Barriault immediately rolled his rival to the right, then going to the right and left. With 10 seconds to go in the second round, referee Chris Tognoni ended the fight.
During the first round, Barriault placed at least three good lines and an uppercut, the latter brought by a feint.
