Patchy Mix (14-1) returned to the win column back in May with a third-round submission over Albert Morales. Prior to that, he suffered a decision loss to Juan Archuleta for the bantamweight title. He also holds a first-round submission over Ricky Bandejas who knocked out Gallagher in the first round. He did miss weight, however.

The American looks to slow down but he shoots for a takedown. Gallagher gets ahold of a guillotine and looks like it is tight. He continues to squeeze but Mix gets out of it.
