Am I the only one that completely forgot that this dude existed? He was on a real run a few years back, right? Yeah, he was. He’s coming off seven straight, and knocked out Neil Magny in his last fight… in 2018.
The Ponz Monster (please get this nickname going) has been out of the came for about two and a half years now. He was supposed to fight Lawler in 2019, but he was forced to pull out because of a staph infection. Must’ve been some staph infection to keep him out of the cage for over two years.
Now that we all remember that Santiago’s an active UFC fighter, lets also take the time to remember how good he is. He’s got serious power and more than holds his own on the floor as well. With a win he’s right back in the mix at 170, and its awesome for that division to get such a serious contender back.
