“I was well prepared for the last bout, so I just stayed training, eating healthy, I stayed in Florida, and I’m in good shape,” Ponzinibbio told MMA Junkie in Spanish. “So if any opportunity comes up, I can return as soon as possible. I feel great, and I have that bitter taste that I can only get rid of with a victory on hand. So I’m excited to return and fight as soon as possible.”
Prior to the lengthy layoff, Ponzinibbio was ranked in the top 10 of the official UFC welterweight rankings and coming off a main event knockout win in his home country of Argentina.
The 34-year-old hopes to get someone in the rankings for his next fight. Ideally, Ponzinibbio would love to throw down with former UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler, who’s ranked No. 15.
