Santiago Ponzinibbio Destroys Gunnar Nelson with Devastating First-Round Knockout

Later tonight, in the main event of the UFC's anticipated return to Glasgow, Scotland, Argentine striking whiz Santiago Ponzinibbio will collide with Iceland's Gunnar Nelson in a crucial welterweight showdown. "I'm more than ready to battle". "Maybe I would have seen the punch, if he had not poked me in the eye", asserted Gunnar after the fight.

"I'd like to get another fight before the end of the year", the rising star said.

Paul Craig suffered a devastating first round knockout at the hands of Khalil Rountree in front of his home supporters. The 35-year-old Canadian was able to use his reach to keep Marshman on the end of his punches and became more aggressive in the fight's dying moments, but "The Hammer" was still able to land some counterpunches and was able to hold on for the win, his eighth in his last nine outings.

Fighting out of Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, Calvillo made her UFC debut in March and has already racked up wins over Calderwood, Pearl Gonzalez and Amanda Cooper.

"I am the best striker in this division, I am the next champion in this division", he boldly declared after the fight.

"It couldn't have ended any better", Rountree said "I think that anybody who knows who I am, knows that I possess knockout power but they think that's all that I possess. They've been brilliant. They've been there every step of the way, and I can't thank them enough for that".

Lightweight Paul Felder also knocked out Stevie Ray in the first round.

Legendary Irish flyweight Neil Seery put on a vintage display in his retirement bout against Alexandre Pantoja.

"Back then, when I started, no one ever gave me a chance". I'm glad it's ended now, though. "I'll live to fight another day, just not inside the octagon".

The SBG fighter was defeated after just two minutes, 10 seconds into the bout, after Bofando threw him to the canvas, knocking him out in the process.

Danny Henry earned a unanimous-decision victory over lightweight Daniel Teymur and Brett Johns won all three rounds in a decision victory over Albert Morales.
