At 0-1 as a pro some were concerned that Levon Sargsyan was heading into deep water against the former Bellator MMA Fighter Ron Henderson (3-2 MMA). Those concerns were put too rest almost immediately. Sargsyan utilized a vast array of strikes including a spinning heel kick to the face at the opening bell. Henderson was forced on his bicycle from the start, as Sargsyan pushed forward establishing the pace.

Henderson was able to get the fight to the mat, however Sargsyan reversed position and landed an illegal knee that hurt Henderson. Veteran referee Mike Bell quickly intervened issuing a 2-point foul (illegal strike with injury). After alerting the judges of the score change, both fighters restarted and although Sargsyan was clearly winning, the foul now made the fight closer on the cards then it was in reality.

Once the fight resumed, The Glendale Fighting Club product immediately resumed his battering. Henderson still rocked from earlier, dove in for a take-down but ended up on his back. Sargsyan broke free to his feet, and unleashed a head kick that caught Henderson while he was still on the ground.

After a moment of judgement, referee Mike Bell waved off the fight as he stood over the supine Henderson. Although there appeared to be no intention behind the strike, Sargsyan was rightfully disqualified and Ron Henderson was awarded with the win in a rather odd finish. The win ends a two fight losing streak for Henderson, while Sargsyan continues to seek out his first win as a pro.
