Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight scrappers Santiago Ponzinibio and Zak Cummings battled last night (Aug. 6, 2016) inside UFC Fight Night 92 at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Ponzinibio has shown clear improvement throughout his UFC career, increasing his pressure and becoming a much more difficult fighter to take down. Opposite Cummings, the Argentinian was hoping to take another step toward the Top 15. Similarly, Cummings has won most of his UFC fights and continues to get better. Like his opponent, Cummings was closing in on the top of the division, but he needed a signature victory to take that final step.
Cummings opened the bout by playing the matador. Attacking his opponent with outside kicks, Cummings landed a few nice counter shots early in the bout when his foe pushed forward.
However, at about the halfway point, Ponzinibbio landed a hard right hand and stuffed a takedown attempt. Not long after, he landed a scorching high kick, though Cummings ate it. With more confidence, Ponzinibio began to throw at a higher volume.
It was a reasonably close round, but Ponzinibio’s late surge likely earned him the round.
Cummings opened the second round with some aggression, and Ponzinibbio responded in kind. Both men took lots of straight power punches, and their faces wore the damage.
The exchanges were quite close throughout the round. Each time Cummings began to find his range and land consistently, Ponzinibio would storm back and throw a higher volume of strikes.
After 10 close minutes of combat, tensions were high heading into the final frame.
