Kennedy and Bisping engaged in a heated war of words over the last several months, with things picking up when the two faced off this week. Using his wrestling, Kennedy was able to control the action, taking Bisping down five times, including twice in the opening round and two more times in the fifth.
In the co-main event, Patrick Cote scored a decision victory in front of his home crowd, defeating Kyle Noke in a battle of The Ultimate Fighter Nations coaches.
Elias Theodorou and Chad Laprise each became the first TUF Nations champions, as Theodorou defeated Sheldon Westcott and Laprise downed Olivier Aubin-Mercier.
The prelims featured a pair of stunning knockouts, as KJ Noons floored Sam Stout 30 seconds into the first round, while Ryan Jimmo knocked Sean O'Connell out with 33 seconds left in the opening round.
Dustin Poirier and Akira Corassani were named the "Fight of the Night," while "Performance of the Night" bonuses went to Noons and Jimmo. They each earned $50,000. The attendance was announced at 5,029 for a live gate of $340,000.
