Santiago Ponzinibbio doesn’t believe that he poked Gunnar Nelson in the eyes, before he took out the welterweight in the opening round at UFC Fight Night 113. But a new video seems to indicate that’s not the case. In fact, it appears to show that Nelson incurred several eye pokes before he was KO’d.
Since Nelson’s loss at UFC Fight Night 113, his coach John Kavanagh, tweeted out the video below:
Doubt it was gameplan or intentional but try having depth perception after getting fingers shoved in eyes repeatedly https://t.co/66H6YrTT6T

Not long after his defeat, Nelson claimed that he was seeing double, as a result of the eye pokes.
