The lip sync challenge was held in a four-man bracket-style format with Buffer going up against Miocic and Evans taking on Hall in the first round. Buffer performed “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol complete with rock ‘n’ roll moves and sunglasses. For Miocic’s performance, he asked Buffer to come back on stage and serenaded him with “You’re the Inspiration” by Chicago. The fans picked Miocic to move on to the second round where he faced the winner of Rashad Evans and Uriah Hall.

Evans charmed the crowd with Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places,” prompting Megan Olivi to give Evans a new nickname – “Country Rashad Evans.” Hall danced around the stage to “1,000 Miles” by Vanessa Carlton even serenading Arianny Celeste in the hopes of swaying the vote. In the end, Olivi called an audible and moved both Evans and Hall into the second and final round to face Miocic.
