This is the UFC Mexico City live blog for Yair Rodriguez vs. Jeremy Stephens, a featherweight bout at Saturday’s UFC event at Arena Ciudad de Mexico.

Rodriguez, who has won nine of his last 10 fights, faces Stephens, who has lost two straight fights heading into his 31st UFC appearance, in the main event.

Check out the UFC Mexico City live blog below.

Round 1: Herb Dean the third man in the cage for tonight’s main event. Rodriguez active with his legs early, going to Stephens’s legs and body. An eye poke by Rodriguez quickly brings the action to a halt. Long break here, Stephens is having trouble even opening his eye for the doctor to check on it. Dean imploring the medical team to wait. After a long, long wait, the bout is ruled a no contest. Fans are throwing plastic cups into the ring. Ugly scene.

Official result: Yair Rodriguez vs. Jeremy Stephens ends in a no contest (accidental eye poke) at :15 of round one
