UFC Fight Night 113 Weigh-in Results

There's six picks to be made on the main card at UFC Glasgow, however.

In terms of total strikes, the two punches that hurt and then knocked out Nelson were the only ones Ponzinibbio was credited for. Now a leg kick. After losing the first round, the Scottish lightweight caught the Swede with a right hand. Ponzinibbio chases him and unleashes a flurry of strikes.

Great stuff from Ponzinibbio.

Ponzinibbio knocked the Icelandic submission specialist down with a combination before he put him to sleep with a right hand as he lay on the ground. "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". After this win, I will be really close to the belt. When nobody gave me a chance, they did. I am the best striker in this division. "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 (14-3) capped off an emotional chapter of his career with a stunning first-round TKO over Stevie Ray (21-7).

The remaining two bouts saw just two writers picking heavyweight James Mulheron in his bout against Justin Willis, despite Willis' relative inexperience at just 4-1 as a pro, plus the fact that Mulheron is fighting on home turf.

Legendary Irish flyweight Neil Seery put on a vintage display in his retirement bout against Alexandre Pantoja. So to think that I was able to move forward to this level. Looking to close the distance, Nelson struck again, this time with straight right between the eyes. "I'll live to fight another day, just not inside the octagon".

But what the 5-2 welterweight newcomer Galore Bofando did on the undercard is unprecedented.

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