After being sidelined for more than two years, Ponzinibbio returned
to the Octagon at UFC on ABC 1, where he suffered a first-round
knockout loss to Jingliang
Li on Jan. 16. Prior to that defeat, the 34-year-old Argentina
native authored a seven-bout winning streak in the Octagon that
included victories over the likes of Neil Magny,
Perry and Gunnar
Baez has the look of a rising star after beginning his professional
tenure with 10 straight victories — including three in the UFC. The
Dana White’s Contender Series alum has finished all three of his
adversaries in the Octagon and is coming off a second-round
submission of Takashi
Sato in his last outing at UFC on ESPN 18.
