Cynthia Calvillo is also poised for a major step forward in the women's strawweight division after winning a unanimous decision over Joanne Calderwood in the co-main event. The two ended up jockeying for position in the clinch, and Felder landed a attractive knee up the middle that dropped Ray to his back. Devastating first-round KO from @SPonzinibbioMMA!

However, that confidence quickly disappeared after Ponzinibbio landed a right hand flush on his chin. After losing the first round, the Scottish lightweight caught the Swede with a right hand. She almost secured a rear-naked choke only to have the bell sound to end the fight at the end of the third.
