Santiago Ponzinibbio quickly took out Gunnar Nelson yesterday at UFC Fight Night 113, but the latter believes things might have been different, if an eye poke he took was called. He came close to finishing the fight on two occasions with a rear naked choke.

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. Main event fighter Gunnar Nelson was a unanimous pick among our staff; perhaps some of that Irish luck has rubbed off on him.

Lightweight Paul Felder (14-3) capped off an emotional chapter of his career with a stunning first-round TKO over Stevie Ray (21-7).

Also on the main card, Las Vegan Khalil Rountree knocked out light heavyweight Paul Craig in the closing seconds of the first round for his second straight win. The co-main has intriguing hometown favorite Joanne Calderwood taking on Cynthia Calvillo in a women's strawweight contest.
