UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Ponzinibbio formula and post-fight analysis

Santiago Ponzinibbio is for real. He entered a UFC with one of those padded annals that is common in South America, mostly built off of violence lower-level competition. He was grinded out by Ryan LaFlare in his debut, picked adult a integrate of wins, afterwards got stopped by Lorenz Larkin. Since afterwards though, he has looked glorious in picking adult 4 wins in a row.

But in my opinion, Gunnar Nelson was approach too large a step adult in competition. And we was really wrong.

Gunnar started really strong, alighting dual large shots that got The Ponz’s attention. But when he got his chance, he landed a large right offshoot that wobbled Nelson, and he cornered him while throwing a solid, technical combination. A pleasing left finished Nelson’s night (well, a integrate of hammerfists combined to that), and a new star was innate in a UFC’s welterweight division.

Can we greatfully see Santiago Ponzinibbio quarrel Rafael dos Anjos? Or Carlos Condit!

  • Joanne Calderwood and Cynthia Calvillo put on kind of a bizarre fight. Calderwood landed some-more strikes in each round, nonetheless still mislaid with dual 30-27 scores for Calvillo. we determine with Calvillo winning since she stole a initial and third with late takedowns and acquiescence threats. Giving Calvillo a second, in a turn where she didn’t get a takedown and got dropped? Not so certain about that. But to be honest, other than a grappling exchanges and a integrate of moments, a quarrel was kind of dull. The throng was a best partial of it, by far.
  • Holy hell, Paul Felder is a savage. we consider he knocked out Stevie Ray twice. That beast knee looked to me like it put Ray out – his hands were only during his side when he was on a pad and he wasn’t fortifying – yet a follow-up punches seemed to arise him behind up. For about one minute, until Felder slept him with dual of a deadliest elbows you’ll see in high-level MMA. The slow-motion replay was only ridiculous.
  • Felder is also a really decorous guy, and it’s no warn that he got an announcing mark on Tuesday Night Contenders. He looked badass during a post-fight speak with his cut leaking blood onto his Reebok shirt and him not even seeing or caring as well.
  • Jack Marshman and Ryan Janes put on an normal middleweight fight. Marshman won a initial with some tough shots. The second was close, yet we leaned towards Marshman for a harder shots. The third was clearly Janes. The judges gave it to Marshman, and we don’t have any problem with that.
  • There’s a lot to empty from a Khalil Rountree-Paul Craig fight. First, Craig fought a really bad fight. It seemed like once he tasted Rountree’s power, his gameplan went out a window. Did he even try a takedown? we don’t consider so. Meanwhile, Rountree picked adult a good win, yet kind of took divided from a impulse by station over his beaten competition for a good 10 seconds, only staring during him. That is flattering unpleasant in my eyes.
  • Wow, was Justin Willis and James Mulheron a terrible approach to start a categorical card. we theory a UFC suspicion a discerning heavyweight knockout would kickstart a show, yet what we got was plodding, tedious TUF 10 heavyweight action. we wish we never have to see that quarrel ever again.
  • Danny Roberts hits intensely hard. The quarrel with Bobby Nash was a bit ungainly before that, yet one fatal left offshoot finished Nashty’s night.
  • Let me get this out of a approach – Neil Seery is a grand man and he put on some good fights. I’m unhappy we won’t get to see him throw anymore. But it certain seemed like Alexandre Pantoja could have taken him down and finished him whenever he wanted to. He brawled for dual rounds since he likes brawling, and it was fun. But when a third turn came around, Pantoja totally dominated and simply won a quarrel around submission.
  • Galore Bofando’s KO of Charlie Ward is one of a strangest things I’ve ever seen in MMA, and I’ve seen a lot of MMA. He only arrange of threw him to a pad – it wasn’t even a impact – and Ward’s conduct strike a mat. He was out only like that. It was so odd.
  • Marc Goddard deserves a lot of credit for his work in that quarrel too. He beheld before anyone that Ward was harm and changed over most closer to him. Bofando did land a integrate of hammerfists that substantially didn’t need to happen, yet roughly any other arbitrate would have been approach out of position and Bofando could have landed a lot more. Goddard didn’t let that occur since he’s really good during his job. I’d contend he’s a best arbitrate in a diversion right now.
  • Danny Henry survived a severe initial turn opposite Daniel Teymur and totally took over. It’s a contrition he couldn’t get a finish, yet we gave him 10-8 scores in a second and third rounds. It seemed like dual judges didn’t know they were regulating a new scoring complement nonetheless – 29-28 is a really bad measure for that fight.
  • Brett Johns put on a good opening opposite Albert Morales. But Morales only had zero off his behind during all. The best partial of a quarrel was Morales’ wrestling manager ripping him a new one for removing taken down all a time.
  • If you’ve ever watched Leslie Smith fight, we know she’s relentless. Amanda Lemos was touching her adult flattering easily in a first, looking flattering technical and strong. But Smith only pennyless her with pressure. She totally tamed a Brazilian, even to a indicate where Lemos with branch her behind on Smith. Great performance.
  • One final thing – there’s no approach Smith should ever be on Fight Pass. we theory that’s what we get for kinship speak though.
