Cynthia Calvillo put in a superb performance in hostile territory to beat Joanne Calderwood at UFC Glasgow.
All three judges saw it the same way in the end as Calderwood left the cage with a bruised ego and broken nose.
It was a fercisous atmosphere in the SSE Hydro and it turned somewhat sour in the end with Calvillo and her coaches clashing with the fans.
Calderwood was given an insane reception and the roof came off the Hydro when she escaped two submission attempts in a row in the first round.
The Scot escaped a rear-naked choke attempt before scrambling away from an arm bar lock.
Calvillo was having to deal with Calderwood’s excellent kicking ability, but hardly seemed fussed by the toxic atmosphere.
Into the second and Calvillo was on the canvas, but it was Calderwood who was taking damage.
Blood was pouring from her nose after a straight left and Calderwood was breathing through her nose, but she continued to come forward.
Both women tried a spinning back fist which garnered a reaction from the crowd and from the fighters.
Calderwood moved forward and continued to hunt, but Calvillo was dangerous at every turn.
And the invader took Calderwood down in the last 50 seconds of the fight and needed just a few more to force the tap.
Calderwood survived, but the fight was gone from her with the final takedown.
An altercation between the two after the bell caused the crowd to turn on Calvillo and then the winner’s coach, Justin Bucholz then almost got into a fight with a fan as he left the cage.
Disappointment for two Scots, however, as Paul Craig was stopped by English rival Khalil Rountree before Stevie Ray suffered the same fate to Paul Felder.
A timid Craig was overwhelmed by Rountree and the crowd it seemed and was eventually put down close to the end of the first round with a big uppercut.
Jack Marshman made it two for two for the Welsh boys at Glasgow as he earned a close decision over Ryan Janes.
The heavyweight opening to the main card was a bit of a dud as James Mulheron was beaten by Justin Willis.
Undercard: Back flipping Bofando makes a statement
Galore Bofando stole the spotlight on the prelims as he spectacularly put Charlie Ward to sleep.
It was a bizarre stoppage as Ward was tossed onto his head by Bofando and immediately out to sleep.
Another Englishman, Danny Roberts was on point in his first fight since October 2016.
Roberts stopped Bobby Nash in the second round with a big left cross that put the American down and ended the fight.
Elsewhere, Leslie Smith, Welshman Brett Johns and Danny Henry picked up impressive wins.
But, there was disappointed on the night for Irish fans who saw Ward defeated before legend Neil Seery was sent into retirement with a loss.
Seery was picked off by Alexandre Pantoja for much of the fight before the Brazilian scored the first and only takedown in the third round.
Pantoja worked his way into Seery’s back before forcing him to tap in a rear-naked choke.
