Saturday was a packed night in the pro wrestling and MMA world, and UFC put their best foot forward with their main event in Argentina.
Santiago Ponzinibbio made a huge impression while fighting in front of his fellow ArgentInians for the first time since 2010. The #10 Ponzinibbio picked apart #8 Neil Magny for three and a half rounds before causing Magny to face plant with a big fourth round KO.
You can check out an excerpt from our live coverage below:
Round Four: The round begins with Magny swinging away against Ponzinibbio, Ponzinibbio quickly drops Magny by landing a leg kick and he allows him to get back up. Magny starts hunting for takedowns against Ponzinibbio, Ponzinibbio again drops a swinging Magny with another leg kick. Ponzinibbio drops Magny again before letting him get up, Magny continues to swing away at an incoming Ponzinibbio. Ponzinibbio destroys Magny with a right and Magny goes out cold.
Official Result: #10 Santiago Ponzinibbio def. #8 Neil Magny by KO via punch (2:36, R4)
Ponzinibbio destroyed Magny with leg kicks, the theme of most of Magny's losses. Santiago has now won seven fights in a row and will likely jump several spots in the UFC rankings.
Also on the show, #12 featherweight Ricardo Lamas had an impressive performance on his way to stopping #13 Darren Elkins in the third round of the co-main event. #9 flyweight Alexandre Pantoja increased his presence in a likely evaporating division with a quick first round submission over #15 (by default) Ulka Sasaki.
