UFC Fight Night 140 took place from the Estadio Mary Terán de Weiss in Buenos Aires, Argentina last night (Sat. November 17, 2018).
Opening up the FS1 preliminary card was a welterweight contest between Laureano Staropoli and Hector Aldana. The pair went all three rounds, and put on a tremendous contest. Although Staropoli won via unanimous decision, both men performed well enough to receive Fight Of The Night. They’ll each take home an extra $50,000.
Also, UFC light heavyweight Johnny Walker made quite the statement with a first-round knockout finish over Khalil Rountree Jr. Walker landed an elbow that slept Routree, and followed up with some punches for the finish. With the spectacular performance, Walker earned a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus.
And finally, in the main event of the night, Santiago Ponzinibbio picked up a huge win. Ponzinibbio knocked out Neil Magny in front of his native Argentinian crowd after a dominant performance. He takes home a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus as well.
