The other Performance of the Night honor went to main eventer Santiago Ponzinibbio, who upset Icelander Gunnar Nelson in the night's main event.

The result was an upset and spoils the growing hype behind Nelson, who trains alongside UFC champion Conor McGregor and had won three of his previous four. After this fight, they will realize I deserved to be in this main event. "I believe I have the potential to knock him out, but if I can't finish him, I'll win a decision". He hit me with a punch that I did not see coming and my eye is still swollen. "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".

"I thought I was doing really well in the beginning", Nelson said. I am the best striker in this division.

Stevie Ray, fighting out his contract in Glasgow, is another unanimous pick for our staff, despite being paired off against risky lightweight Paul Felder.

Melhor no jogo, logo aos 15 minutos Seijas levou perigo ao gol tricolor em cobrança de falta que carimbou a trave de Renan. Pratto ainda finalizou duas vezes - uma de fora da área e outra de cabeça - mas não venceu o goleiro adversário.

Meanwhile, there was no fairytale ending for Irish flyweight Neil Seery as he lost his retirement fight to Alexandre Pantoja via submission in the third round of their bout.

"When I look back to where it all began, I'm glad I started when I did, and I'm glad it started that way", the Dubliner said afterwards. So to think that I was able to move forward to this level. My coaches always believed in me and they made me believe in myself.

"Back then, when I started, no one ever gave me a chance. Maybe I would have seen the punch, if he had not poked me in the eye", asserted Gunnar after the fight. English pair Danny Roberts and Galore Bofando earned eye-catching knockout victories, while Welsh duo Jack Marshman and Brett Johns, plus Scottish newcomer Danny Henry, all picked up hard-earned decision wins.

Women's bantamweight veteran Leslie Smith opened the preliminary card with a second-round knockout of Amanda Lemos.
