UFC Glasgow: Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio Staff Picks

UFC Glasgow: Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio Staff Picks

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.

Nelson rocked Ponzinibbio early, but the Argentinian wasted no time returning the favor, clipping Nelson and putting him on the back foot. "But I had it wrong and I think that was the biggest mistake in this fight", said Mr. Nelson after, even as he claimed to have been poked in the eye that hampered his vision.

"I face every opponent as the most important fight of my life because we have to be successful in order to continue growing", Ponzinibbio said.

Nelson, a teammate of UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor at SBG Ireland, was looking to improve on his two-fight win streak inside the Octagon.

"I'm the best striker in this division".

Nelson had won his last two fights by submission and was hoping to break into the top five. She almost secured a rear-naked choke only to have the bell sound to end the fight at the end of the third.

Ms. Calvillo (6-0) remained undefeated in her pro mixed martial arts career with her latest win while Ms. Calderwood (11-2) dropped to her second defeat in as many fights.

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. "I want to fight the very best because I don't want there to be any question that I'm the best in the world, and that's what I want to become".

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.

Exhaustion and Henry's pressure began wearing on Teymur, who was nearly finished a few times before the final buzzer, after which it was announced that the Edinburgh fighter had claimed a unanimous decision victory.
