    Ponz is fighting Muslim Salikhov on January 16th in an Ultimate Fight Night event. A real tough fight, i hope he knocks out the russian.

    Should be an exciting stand up affair, but if Ponz takes Muslim down it could be an easy win.

    Since TS is too lazy to just copy-paste a tweet.



    Really good fight.

    I got excited at first but then I remember Ponzi can wrestle a bit, wasn't he taking Perry down repeatedly?

    Yeah he should be able to grapple fuck Muslim with ease, as he's a Sanda master and Alex Garcia took him down and subbed him. But if he's improved his TDD in Dagestan this could be a decent stand up fight.

    Ponz is a Black Belt, Salikhov is a Blue Belt.. I'm no expert on Wushu but I believe there is grapple stuff in that too, of which Salikhov is a Master of.. He's only EDIT: 3 Arm Triangle wins on his record though, and 2 RNC losses.. So Ponz Sub could be a good bet.

    Never heard of Muslim Salikhov but that sounds like a step back in terms of opponent for Ponzinibbio.

    Nice to see Ponz coming back. Hopefully his medical issues are behind him. Sounds like he had a really bad and scary time of it.

    That being said:

    I hope Ponz gets eye poked a bunch and finished in the same way as he did to Gunnar.

    He's a tough opponent, especially after such a lay off, he's 17-2 with 12 KO's... I don't think we can be fussy with Ponz fighting anyone at this point lol.

    It is, but all ranked opponents did not accept to fight him

    Is Santiago's long injury layoff the result of the karma police for all the eyepokes?
