Five of the six matches to take place Saturday at Metamoris 5 ended in a draw, including the main event between Kazushi Sakuraba and Renzo Gracie.

Sakuraba and Gracie first met several years ago, with Sakuraba breaking his arm in a match in PRIDE. Gracie is set to face Matt Hughes in 2015.

Rory MacDonald, the next contender to the UFC welterweight title, battled J.T. Torres to a draw in the co-headline bout. Jake Shields-Roberto Satoshi, which was the secret match, also ended in a draw, as did Yuri Simoes-Keenan Cornelius and Vinny Magalhaes-Matheus Diniz.

Magalhaes’ opponent, Diniz, was offered $10,000 if he could submit the current Titan FC light heavyweight champion after agreeing to face him on short notice.

Garry Tonon earned a submission victory over Zak Maxwell via heel hook to open the action.
