Later tonight, in the main event of the UFC's anticipated return to Glasgow, Scotland, Argentine striking whiz Santiago Ponzinibbio will collide with Iceland's Gunnar Nelson in a crucial welterweight showdown.

In his most recent bout, the Argentinian picked apart Nordine Taleb en route to a unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 105 in February.

"They've been there every step of the way, and I can't thank them enough for that".

The 36-year-old featured on the preliminary portion of the UFC Glasgow card against flashy striker Galore Bofando and fell victim to one of the strangest knockouts you're going to see all year. "I believe I have the potential to knock him out, but if I can't finish him, I'll win a decision".

"Maybe I would have seen that shot that caught me but it is what it is, you know". "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". "They'd better get me now while I'm young".

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

Seery went toe-to-toe with rising Brazilian prospect Alexandre Pantoja in a thrilling bout before eventually succumbing to a third-round rear-naked choke.

"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 just to think that I was able to move forward to this level, (is amazing)". When nobody gave me a chance, they did. I'm glad it's ended now, though. The eye is still sore now but it's just one of those things, I really should have said something and I don't know why I didn't.

Nelson, a teammate of UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor at SBG Ireland, was looking to improve on his two-fight win streak inside the Octagon.
