    With Colby falling through with Usman, why aren't they stepping Ponzi up to Usman?

    Ponzi needs another win before a title shot.

    What is he on like a 6 fight win streak? Have him fight Leon for the interim after Colby Usman

    I like it, except the interim part.

    Way too many fighters are ahead on the pecking order.

    Santiago Ponzinibbio returns home after second hospitalization in one month

    Less than two weeks after being hospitalized (June 7) with bacterial infection in his knee and undergoing emergency surgery in Florida, UFC welterweight Santiago Ponzinibbio had to return to the hospital.

    The Argentine talent, who remained in hospital for a week earlier this month, was cleared from the hospital on Tuesday after spending eight more days under medical care, he told MMA Fighting.

    According to Ponzinibbio, he had a reaction to the medication he was taking after the surgery and had to return to the hospital after experiencing pain and fever. The welterweight fighter has yet to be cleared to return to training and doesn’t have a timetable for a return to the Octagon.

    “I’m focused on my recovery now,” Ponzinibbio told MMA Fighting. “I want to fight soon, of course, but I have to get back to 100 percent first. I know I’ll come back better than ever and win the fights I have to win to win my title.”


    Subsequently, in mid-August, Ponzinibbio indicated that he was targeting a late fall return and hoped to have a fight scheduled in November/December. With Sao Paulo getting a Blachowicz/Souza headliner, I don't think Ponzibbio will be on that card.

    That would be a good one for him.
    Looks like he's going to have over a year between fights. That's not going to get him any closer to a title. Any word on if he's been injured or what fights have been offered to him?

    Ducking Wonderboy and Leon, both of whom he probably could have fought at MSG

    The UFC cock-blocked him on this one because he kept turning down the fights they were offering him

    Ponzinibbio can't work up any steam coz he disappears a lot through injury. He's like constantly on the back-burner. He has a few options though, but some are questionable:

    RDA (most likely)
    Leon Edwards (LE deserves bigger)
    Geoff Neal (Ponzi deserves bigger)
    Jingliang Li (Ponzi deserves bigger but do not rule it out)
    Michael Chiesa

    RDA or Chiesa for me.
