“Ruthless” is on a three-fight losing streak since 2017 (Rafael dos Anjos, Ben Askren, and Colby Covington). The 32-year-old Ponzinibbio, on the other hand, was on the winning end in his last seven bouts under the UFC banner. The Argentinian’s last loss came in 2015 by the hands of Lorenz Larkin.
The organization is yet to confirm the fight between these two. The announced to date list of matchups can be found below.
