Following Santiago Ponzinibbio’s impressive win over Neil Magny at UFC Argentina last weekend, the surging welterweight is claiming he would defeat Conor McGregor, Georges St-Pierre and Tyron Woodley.

The Argentinean fighter outscored Magny throughout much of the card’s main event, before knocking him out in round four. After the bout, Ponzinibbio had this to say, while discussing possibilities for future fights (quotes via MMA Junkie):

“You give me Conor, I am a better striker than him,” Ponzinibbio said. “He’s really good at trash talk and he’s a really good businessman, but I’m a better fighter. This is different. I’m a better striker. I have better timing. I have better power. I’ll finish him, for sure. I’ll finish McGregor. I’ll finish GSP – GSP is old. He’s a good guy. I like him. I’m a big fan. But I’m better. I’ll finish him. I’m ready for both. I’m an exciting fighter.

“I know I’m ready. I know I’ll finish Tyron. I know I’ll knock him out, but I need the opportunity. If you give me the fight with GSP, I’ll knock him out for sure. I’ll knock anybody at 170 pounds if you give me the opportunity.”

With the win this past weekend, Ponzinibbio moved his winning streak to 7 and his overall record to 27-3.
