Not counting a loss to the legendary Demian Maia, 2014 and 2015 have been good for Neil Magny, with nine trips to the Octagon resulting in eight wins. In other words, he’s a dangerous dude.
So it came as no surprise that, after Matt Brown had to bow out of UFC Fight Night 78 this Saturday due to injury, Magny was brought in as a replacement to take on Kelvin Gastelum in the main event.
He’s won by knockout, he’s won by submission, and he’s won simply by outlasting his foes. Sure, Gastelum won a season of TUF, but Magny is going to be a tough nut to crack – and Magny is just as likely to kick HIS ass.
Here’s some Magny handiwork. Watch and get motivated for Saturday.
