    The new eye-poke champ, taking over where Bones left off.

    Poke-Zinibio ftw

    Nah. Perry isn't that good. If Ponzi were champ material he should've been dominating from the beginning. He only took over once Perry started to gas.

    I like Ponzinibbio for derailing the Perry hype, but I honestly don't see him as a potential champion. He is good, but the problem is that the WW division is stacked with guys like:

    1. Woodley (top level wrestling, huge ko power, very high fight IQ)
    2. Thompson (a stylistic nightmare for any standup fighter other than Woodley)
    3. RDA (well-rounded fighter, great conditioning)

    Ponzinibbio's cardio seems questionable after tonight, so unless he brings something new to his fight that would give him a significant advantage over the top 3 fighters above, I don't see him winning the belt.

    Nah. He spent a long time running around the cage and then finally engaged when Perry just started winging wild punches. Not a fan of either guy, but Ponz made that fight pretty dull. Top five fighters go through him.

    You thought the fight yesterday was dull? What the fuck? It was a very good fight.

    Ponzinibio being ranked at #10 already seems like a generous ceiling. I don't even expect him to beat some of the guys ranked below him, like Magny, so I certainly don't see him defeat anyone ranked above.
