Pic: UFC Argentina poster drops for ‘Magny vs Ponzinibbio’

New, 7 comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is less than two months away from its UFC Fight Night 140 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, taking place inside Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Sat., Nov. 17, 2018.

And to help get combat sports fans jazzed for the upcoming event, the promotion recently released the official fight poster featuring welterweight headliners Neil Magny and Santiago Ponzinibbio, who collide for a spot in the 170-pound title chase in the five-round main event.

Magny (21-6) currently owns a two-fight win streak and was scheduled to face off against Alex Oliveira at UFC Fight Night 137 back in September, but was ultimately yanked from that bout in favor of pairing him against Ponzinibbio.

Similarly, “Gente Boa” (26-3) was expected to battle Kamaru Usman at UFC Fight Night 129 in Chile earlier this year until a late injury gave him pause. The Argentinian is riding a six-fight win streak and was last seen beating the brakes off Mike Perry back in December of 2017.
