    Santiago Ponzinibbio was pretty hyped, he doesnt have any fight booked yet?
    he fought one year ago

    Vicente Luque fought three times in 2019

    They're both on their way up in the ranks, this does not make sense to fight each other.

    Plus Santiago is probably still injured?

    It makes perfect sense. Both are on 6 and 7 fight win streaks respectively. It'd also be an unreal fight and potentially a number 1 contender fight aswell.

    The problem is that anyone ranked higher than these guys are Masvidal, Edwards, Woodley and Colby. If you do Nate/Jorge and Colby/Usman, it only leaves Ponz, Edwards, Woodley and Luque without a fight.

    Unfortunately that's the downside of WW being full of straight killers and beasts.

    Ponzi vs Edwards and Diaz vs Masvidal would be better

    I think Luque vs Wonderboy would be a good step up for him

    Who the fuck should they fight? Why baby them? We don't need more guys sitting out years because they think they deserve title shots.

    I spoke to Ponzi…he was supposed to fight on the card at Uruguay, but got injured. The UFC was offering him a fight with Luque, but he wasn't in the rankings or was lower than him, so the did't accept the fight but was angling for a fight against Dos Anjos, but he got injured

    Yes. Contenders should be fed cans forever, and never be matched up against each other.

    What a remarkably stupid post.

    Woodley, Wonderboy, RDA... established guys.

    Damn I want to see Luque or Ponzi beating Robbie Lawler.
