That strategy backfired a moment later when Ponzinibbio clipped Nelson with a huge right hand during an exchange where both fighters came forward with aggressive punches. Finding an opening, Nelson stunned Ponzinibbio wit ha lead uppercut.

Ponzinibbio pounced from the first bell at Glasgow's SSE Hydro Arena and followed up a big right by landing a vicious blow with his left to leave Nelson exposed on the campus, before the referee intervened. Nelson, who had been campaigning for a highly ranked opponent prior to Sunday, is now 7-3 in the UFC. She almost secured a rear-naked choke only to have the bell sound to end the fight at the end of the third. Johns threatened with a head and arm choke in the third round, but eventually took the win by unanimous decision. She also bloodied Calderwood's nose with a left hook, right hand combination in the second. The co-feature is between Scotland's own Joanne Calderwood (11-2 MMA, 3-2 UFC) and Cynthia Calvillo (5-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) at straw weight. The 32-year-old wore a small capsule filled with his father's ashes around his neck to the Octagon. "I was there with him in hospice, and he's here in this chain with me tonight". Ray got dropped in the first round and Felder finished with him with brutal elbows from top position.

Felder has quietly won four of his past five contests, recording finishes in three of those.

Goldman's wife, Serra, is a member of the university's Board of Trustees and School of Law alumna. The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate the crash, Gregor said.

Paul Craig and Jack Marshman were also clean sweeps; Craig is especially surprising given he's facing the tough Khalil Rountree in light heavyweight action. Craig, of Scotland, looked timid throughout and never came close to scoring a takedown.

Twice now, the SBG welterweight and close friend of Conor McGregor was knocked unconscious in the first round of a UFC fight, having made his promotional debut last November. Craig falls to 1-2 in the UFC.
