At the same time, Santiago She also commented, “So after all these complications, I am hungrier than ever to go back to work. Thank God, after going through something like that, you put value on things. I’ll definitely be back in 2020. I don’t care who, ranked or unranked, I don’t care. I mean, obviously I’d rather get a top five or a main event. I think that because of the work I’ve done for the company, I deserve it. “
Want the title
“I have a lot of fights under the organization, so I feel like I deserve that opportunity. Also, the times I’ve been the main event, I’ve won by knockout, ‘Performance of the Night,’ against ranked opponents. In my last three fights, I have beaten ranked opponents. But yeah, I’ve been doing a good job in the division. Yes, I had a break with all the bad luck that I had this year and in 2019, as you know, I was in the hospital, “said the South American.
Trusting in his power, Santiago Ponzinibbio He closed by saying: “All that is over and now I am physically better than ever and with a hunger to enter the Octagon that I cannot express in words.

It would automatically go back to the rankings and my name would go back to people’s minds. I would become a contender. That’s the goal, that’s why I want to fight this year and get a victory in 2020. Then, in 2021, get two more fights to get to the title ”.
