Interview with Neil Magny above
Neil Magny is set to headline a fun welterweight contender fight against Michael Chiesa at UFC Fight Island 8. The fight is a chance for the Colorado native to breakout in his division following a very successful 2020 that saw him go 3-0.
The fight has largely been billed as a striker vs grappler matchup with Magny seen largely as the striker. Something that has surprised him considering how much grappling he showed against Robbie Lawler in his last fight.
In this interview, Magny shared his views on the matchup with Chiesa, why analysts are underestimating Chiesa, what he thinks of Khamzat Chimaev, wanting Leon Edwards next, and much more. The full interview can be found in the video at the top of the page.
