Mikhail Kolobegov (12-3) def. (SD) Thiago Silva (20-7)

The ACB 82 main event between Silva and Kolobegov was a very evenly-contested fight. Kolobegov utilized mainly a boxing-focused offense, swarming him often in the first round. Meanwhile, Silva offered a more varied offense with his kicks. Throughout the fight, Kolobegov moved a lot and never really engaged Silva in a firefight. At the end of the fight, the judges awarded a split decision for Kolobegov.

Matheus Mattos (12-1) def. (MD) Nashkho Galaev (6-4)

The fight started off somewhat tentatively. However, the action picked up after Galaev caught Mattos off balance and briefly knocked him down. As the action picked up, Mattos was able to land a right hook which knocked Galaev down who then wisely chose to wrestle which allowed him to recover.

At the start of the second round, Mattos landed a head kick which sent Galaev down. From there, the Brazilian threatened with an arm triangle which looked extremely tight, however, Galaev was able to escape. As the fighters stood up, Galaev unleashed a flurry of punches but was knocked down again by Mattos. Galaev again somehow survived the round.

In the final round, Galaev came out strong and visibly stunned Mattos before knocking him down with a knee from the clinch. Mattos survived the following ground and pound and was caught Galaev in a triangle but was unable to finish. At the end of a grueling fight, the judges awarded a majority decision to Mattos.
