One week removed from the UFC 25th anniversary show in Denver, the promotion heads to Argentina, specifically, Buenos Aires, for another UFC Fight Night (main card Saturday night at 10 p.m. EST, 7 p.m. PST on FS1.)
UFC Buenos Aires is headlined by a main event between No. 8 Welterweight contender Neil Magny (21-7) and No. 10 Welterweight contender Santiago Ponzinibbio (27-3) in a five-round fight.
The new UFC.com layout includes a new column that indicates the result of each fighter’s last fight on the match-up page. Both Magny and Ponzinibbio won in their most recent appearances.
Magny has posted a record of 3-2 in his last five UFC appearances, most recently winning by first-round knockout against Craig White in the May 27 UFC Fight Night on FS1 from Liverpool.
In the other corner, Ponzinibbio has posted a perfect 5-0 record in his last five fights. His most recent victory came last year during UFC on FOX: Lawler vs. dos Anjos by decision vs. Mike Perry.
The Tale of the Tape:
The UFC.com tale of the tape for Saturday evening’s headliner indicates that Magny leads in both reach (80 inches to Ponzinibbio’s 73) and leg reach (45 inches to Ponzinibbio’s 40.)
