After trading solid punches early in their fight, Santiago Ponzinibbio proved to have too much firepower for TUF 11 winner Court McGee.
With redness and swelling around his left eye, Ponzinibbio slammed a lead right to his foe’s face, dropping him. McGee, who was bleeding from his nose and mouth, staggered to his feet but the TUF Brazil 2 veteran was all over him, drilling him with punches from everywhere. McGee tried to scurry to safety, but he couldn’t escape the onslaught and had to be saved by referee Herb Dean. The official time of the TKO came at 4:15 of the very first round, giving Ponzinibbio his biggest win thus far.
