Tense moments and then Nelson lands a grazing uppercut and another punch behind it that sends Ponzinibbio backwards. Felder dedicated his win to his father, who passed away a week before his camp for the Glasgow event began.

"I am the best striker in this division, I am the next champion in this division", he boldly declared after the fight. If I'd had 10 more seconds she would have been done, she would have been tapped out.

"The key of this fight is that this is a main event", he continued. "I'll live to fight another day, just not inside the octagon". That's how I fight since I started in this sport. Give me who you like. "It's a main event, so more people will watch me and see what I can do". "So just to think that I was able to move forward to this level, (is amazing)".

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. No one has given me anything, I've earned this.

"They've been there every step of the way, and I can't thank them enough for that". "Every single one of my UFC fights were exciting".

He's been quietly putting together a quality run in the UFC for some time now, but this could be the performance that really brings him into the spotlight as nobody has ran through Nelson like that before.

"Maybe I would have seen that shot that caught me but it is what it is, you know". "I was there with him in hospice, and he's here in this chain with me tonight". "I believe I have the potential to knock him out, but if I can't finish him, I'll win a decision". "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 believe in that. I am ready for everything and everyone".
