With the Mexico crowd excited to see Yair Rodriguez perform, their excitement quickly devolved into ugly scenes as an eye poke 15 seconds into the bout left Jeremy Stephens unable to compete.
With Stephens’ eye completely closed over after taking the full five minutes for the foul, the main event was waved off by a sympathetic referee in Herb Dean and duly deemed a no contest. That decision was not taken lightly by the Mexico City crowd however as bottles began to rain down on the Octagon for a brief period.
