As the promoters/judges were trying to determine who had the Submission of the Night, they were torn between Xavier Silva and Jose Angulo, the two crowds favorites. They then asked the crowd to determine who won Submission of the Night. As the promoter pointed to Xavier, the crowd in the front lower section cheered frantically. The promoter then pointed to Jose, and the crowd seated mid level cheered with equal enthusiasm. With the crowd still in a frenzy and evenly split between Xavier and Jose, the promoter decided to have them fight to see who'd receive the Submission of the Night Belt. Both competitors were eager to go to battle for the rights to the additional bet, while the crowd went wild with the announcement. And in the end, in a tough battle, Xavier defeats Jose by his 2nd Kimora of the night, to win the belt. An epic way to end the showcase, Expect more in this series from SubCon.
