Ponzinibbio Knocks Out Magny At UFC Argentina
On a night filled with knockout victories and numerous submission victories, Santiago Ponzinibbio ended UFC’s trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina with a big win over Neil Magny.
Ponzinibbio knocked out Magny halfway through the fourth round at UFC Fight Night 140 to extend Ponzinibbio’s win streak to seven fights. Magny had been seemingly dealing with a badly injured left leg and Ponzinibbio took advantage. Ponzinibbio kicked the wounded leg, which forced Magny to the cage and Ponzinibbio scored an incredible right hand that sent Magny face-first onto the canvas.
In the co-main event, Ricardo Lamas got a TKO victory over longtime veteran Darren Elkins to end a two-fight losing streak and pick up his first win since stopping Jason Knight at UFC 214 in July 2014. Lamas landed numerous elbows and strikes to hurt Elkins and Lamas continued to pour on the offense until the referee stopped the bout.
