Santiago Ponzinibbio, Argentine UFC fighter, returns to action next Saturday and causes anxiety. In what will be UFC Vegas 28, the South American will face Miguel Baeza in the headliners, being a more than complicated battle for him. Thus, in a press conference prior to the gigantic event of the weekend, he talked to MMA Junkie and reassured the fans.
Starting with his words, Ponzinibbio highlighted the following about his next big fight: “In this sport, one second makes a difference. that sometimes in the fight, I think what I’m going to do, I don’t do it. I think a little bit. There are very small things, but they give my opponent confidence. I still escaped all the punches in my last fight. I started to put my game together.”
Seeking redemption: Santiago Ponzinibbio says he is at his best for Saturday’s fight
“I took too much time to make some decisions that you can’t. In the fight, you can’t take this long to make decisions. It’s about the time 26 months out. Physically, I wasn’t 100 percent. I did a medical study that showed me that, but I don’t make excuses. This is the company of punches. Now, I’ve fixed it and I’m 100 percent physically. Mentally, I learned”, highlighted the “Rasta”.
He wants to change his present
The wait was more than long to see Santiago back inside the cage, who saw action at the beginning of the year and it was not positive. After spending two years inactive, the Argentinean entered the octagon in one of the first events of the season, losing by knockout in the first round. However, the Latin American community and the Mixed Martial Arts loving public support him to succeed again.
With 34 years old, Santiago Ponzinibbio, accumulates 28 victories, 14 of them by knockout and 6 by submission, in addition to the 4 defeats he has. The world of MMA will be watching this crossroads with Miguel Baeza, a great UFC talent. He will not have an easy task, but the Argentinean wants to redeem himself with a victory that will leave him in good standing to dream again with the company’s title.
