Santiago Ponzinibbio Facts

  1. Born in Argentina to parents of Italian heritage, Santiago had started getting trained in kickboxing when he was 13 years old. He had later developed an interest in MMA but since there were not too many facilities to train for the same in Argentina, he had briefly moved to Florianópolis, Brazil. In his first 5 months there, he used to live in a tent on a beach and would survive by doing some odd jobs.
  2. He had eventually turned professional in 2008 and before joining UFC in 2013, he had amassed an incredible 18–1 win-loss record competing promotions based in Brazil and Argentina such as Copa Desafio, Cupide del MMA, Real Fights, Explosion Fight Night, Argentina Fighting Championships, Hero Kombat, Expo Fighting Championship, Amazon Fight, Brazilian Fight League, Centurion Mixed Martial Arts, Nitrix Champion Fight, Sao Jose Super Fight, Monster Black Combat, and Insano Empalux – Grand Prix.
  3. As of November of 2022, he had won 4 UFC Bonus Awards (separate cash bonuses usually awarded to 4 fighters after each UFC event, based on internal decisions by UFC management) – ‘Fight of the Night’ (twice) and ‘Performance of the Night’ (twice).
