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