Twitter Web Client : Brutal. Neil Magny couldn't stand in the fourth round. Knocked down three times by leg kicks. Santiago Ponzinibbio eventually puts him away with a crushing right hand. Did he need to take that final punch? Might be one his corner second guesses on the flight home.

Twitter Web Client : Ricardo Lamas stops Darren Elkins in the third round. Elkins made it competitive as he always does, despite Lamas bloodying his face almost immediately. Lamas' ground and pound gets it done late though.

Twitter Web Client : Cynthia Calvillo is back. Missed weight for UFC Fight Night in Argentina, but subs Poliana Botelho in the first. First win since July 2017. Easy to forget all the momentum she had winning three fights in five months last year. Good reminder of that tonight.

Twitter Web Client : Hearing the UFC is working on signing decorated grappler Kron Gracie, son of Rickson Gracie, with the intent to have him fight at UFC 233 on Jan. 26 in Anaheim. Gracie is 4-0 in MMA, including a win over Tatsuya Kawajiri in 2016.

Twitter Web Client : Santiago Ponzinibbio had to leave his home in Argentina to become a world class fighter. This weekend he gets to headline the UFC's first event there. Pretty cool, he told me his father will be watching him live for the first time ever against Neil Magny. espn.com/mma/story/_/id…

Twitter Web Client : Breaking: The UFC is close to finalizing Nick Diaz's return to the Octagon, per Dana White. The fight is Jorge Masvidal at UFC 235 on March 2 in Las Vegas. Diaz's first appearance in more than four years. Story coming soon to @ESPN.

iPhone : Yeah, this is an amazing story. Wow. Read about UFC newcomer Ian Heinisch’s path to becoming a professional athlete. Pretty mind blowing stuff. theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles…

Twitter Web Client : This weeks Bellator event in Tel Aviv is really under the radar, but its a good fight. Emmanuel Sanchez is legit and under-promoted. I cant even find betting odds, but I think hes a real challenge for Pitbull.

iPhone : RE: Cowboy’s tease of a fight with Conor, it would be VERY surprising if the UFC negotiated and sent a contract for Conor’s next fight, while he awaits a ruling on his case with the Nevada commission.

But hey, throw it out there either way if you’re Cowboy, right?
