The UFC is in Buenos Aires, Argentina as native son and No. 10 welterweight Santiago Ponzinibbio takes on No. 8 Neil Magny in the main event.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (10PM ET/7PM PT)

CYNTHIA CALVILLO (6-1-0) VS. PAULA BOTELHO (7-1-0)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: Calvillo missed weight for the fight and will be heavier. Normally I think the wrestling of Calvillo overpowers most strikers, but here, the home cooking that Botelho will enjoy will help her overcome it for the narrow win.

Andrews Prediction: Paula Botelho via SD

GUIDO CANNETTI (8-3-0) VS. MARLON VERA (11-5-1)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: “Ninja” is 38 years old with 11 bouts, while Vera is 25 years old with 17 pro bouts. Even though Cannetti will be the hometown hero, Vera has fought better competition and should get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Marlon Vera via UD

CEZAR FERREIRA (14-6-0) VS. IAN HEINISCH (11-1-0)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: Heinisch is coming from the DWCS and is making his debut. Ferreira has a lot of octagon experience and should get the decision.

KHALIL ROUNTREE (8-2-0, 1NC) VS. JOHNNY WAKER (13-3-0)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: Rountree will try to bully Walker his way into a knockout.

Andrews Prediction: Khalil Rountree via KO

RICARDO LAMAS (18-7-0) VS. DARREN ELKINS (25-6-0)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: Elkins has the knack fo the big comeback and Lamas has been on the skids lately. Elkins overcomes some early trouble to get the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Darren Elkins via SD

MAIN EVENT

#8 NEIL MAGNY (21-7-0) VS. #10 SANTIAGO PONZINIBBIO (27-3-0)

UFC Buenos Aires

Andrews: Magny has the knack for the upset, but I don’t he can handle the striking of Ponzinibbio.

Andrews Prediction: Santiago Ponzinibbio via UD
