Video: UFC Fighter Knocked Out By Monstrous Slam In Scotland

"However It was not my night and its a bitter pill to swallow but this is life and I live to fight another day and this day will turn into knowledge and fuel for the battles ahead".

Officials are doing more these days to stop fighters from leaving their fingers extended during exchanges, but really, the UFC should look at introducing new gloves that reduce eye pokes.

Calderwood, who is from Glasgow, had some success defending Calvillo's takedown and scored frequently with inside low kicks, but it was Calvillo who secured the key moments. She also bloodied Calderwood's nose with a left hook, right hand combination in the second. Middleweight Jack Marshman won a unanimous decision over Ryan Janes and heavyweight Justin Willis made a successful UFC debut by winning all three rounds of a unanimous decision over James Mulheron in the opener of the main card.

With this knockout, Ponzinibbio now has 14 career first-round finishes.

Lightweight Paul Felder (14-3) capped off an emotional chapter of his career with a stunning first-round TKO over Stevie Ray (21-7). The 32-year-old wore a small capsule filled with his father's ashes around his neck to the Octagon.

"I thought I hurt him and had him on the run".

Ray, who is from Scotland and had the crowd behind him, unsuccessfully worked for takedowns early. Ray got dropped in the first round and Felder finished with him with brutal elbows from top position.

Felder paid a poignant tribute to his father by finishing Ray inside of four minutes of the opening round. Nelson was so stunned that he began to wrestle the referee as he came to his senses.

Henry bit down on his mouthpiece, weathered the storm and came off the stool in the second round a different fighter as he used his superior reach advantage to start punishing the Swede. Craig falls to 1-2 in the UFC.
