Happy Days as Young Mein Set to Rumble with “The Ponz”
“Santiago Ponzinibbio is my next opponent in Florida April 19th. Looks like a fantastic card shaping up. Im geeked about this one!! Wooooooo”
The bout, which will take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, will be the first for Jordan Mein (27-9) in 364 days. Mein, who has been recovering from injuries, lost his second UFC bout to Matt Brown in a Fight of the Night performance. The loss dropped Mein’s record to 1-1 in the UFC as he defeated Dan Miller in his first UFC fight.
Santiago Ponzinibbio (18-2) entered the UFC via TUF Brazil 2. He made his professional debut with the promotion at UFC Fight Night 32 where he lost a decision to Ryan LaFlare.
The two fighters join a Fox televised card that already has Fabricio Werdum, Travis Browne, Donald Cerrone, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and many others tentatively scheduled to appear.
