After losing the first round with it mostly being contested on the ground and struggling for takedowns, Rakoczy landed multiple punches on the feet in the second round. After several heavy blows landed and a slam against Modafferi's armbar attempt Rakoczy won via TKO.

In the semifinals, Rakoczy faced Raquel Pennington and won the fight via unanimous decision after three rounds.
