An intriguing welterweight showdown between top contenders Neil Magny and Santiago Ponzinibbio is set to headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night 140 mixed martial arts (MMA) event tomorrow night (Sat., Nov. 17, 2018) inside Parque Roca Arena in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
It’s a no-brainer to have the hometown hero, Ponzinibbio, headline the FOX Sports 1 event in what will mark the promotion’s first trip to Argentina. “Gente Boa” is currently riding a six-fight win streak and was last seen beating the brakes off Mike Perry in Dec. of 2017.
As for Magny, he 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 contest in favor of pairing him against Ponzinibbio.
Watch them come face-to-face at Friday’s weigh ins using the embedded video above.
