Gunnar Nelson (16-2-1) is coming off a second round submission win over Alan Jouban at UFC Fight Night London this past March. Previously to that, the Icelander had won another second round submission win over Albert Tumenov in Rotterdam. Both wins earned Gunnar a performance of the night bonus. His last loss came to UFC Welterweight contender Demian Maia back at UFC 194 in December 2015. He has won three out of his last four, all of those wins coming by submission.
Santiago Ponzinibbio (24-3) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Nordine Taleb in Halifax this past February. Previously to that the Brazilian Black belt had won another unanimous decision over Zak Cummings back at UFC Fight Night 92 in August. Ponzinibbio is currently riding a four fight win streak with two of those wins coming via first round TKO. He will now get his first opportunity to headline an event when he takes on the No. 9 ranked Gunnar Nelson in Glasgow.
This event will take place at the SSE Hydro, July 16th in Glasgow, Scotland.
