At just 29 years of age, it seems like Ponzinibbio is starting to put it all together, with the biggest win of his career coming tonight at UFC on FOX 19. As for McGee, this is certainly going to force him to go back to the drawing board and fix any holes in his standup that weren't necessarily present before this fight.
