THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

UFC Fight Night 140 marks the first time the UFC has staged an event in Argentina with their home town hero Santiago Ponzinibbio hosting Neil Magny for the main event. This will be Ponzinibbio’s first appearance in 11 months but it will be well worth the wait for his fans.

He is on a very impressive six-fight winning streak with the likes of Gunnar Nelson and Mike Perry falling victim at the hands of the Argentinian and he faces another talented UFC veteran who always provides an awkward threat and an interesting stylistic match-up.

THE PREDICTION

Magny will have his usual substantial reach advantage which, along with his takedowns, will be his biggest allies in attempting to extinguish the stand-up threat of Ponzinibbio. Although the Argentinian has a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he is a monster on the feet and will look to dominate as he has done with the majority of his UFC opponents.

Magny will be confident of using his reach advantage to inflict damage, especially with his jab, and he will look to mix in takedowns with level-changes. However, Ponzinibbio has looked exceptional in all his recent fights, continues to improve and will be fueled by his comeback in Buenos Aires so we are backing him for another win.

Winner: Ponzinibbio via KO/TKO
