Gunnar Nelson vs. Neil Magny to Co-Headline UFC Fight Night 130 in Liverpool

By Tristen Critchfield Mar 28, 2018


A welterweight clash pitting Gunnar Nelson against Neil Magny will serve as the UFC Fight Night 130 co-headliner, promotion officials announced Wednesday.

Additionally, a 170-pound contest between Bradley Scott and Salim Touahri has also been added to the card. UFC Fight Night 130 takes place on May 27 at Echo Arena in Liverpool, England and is expected to feature a welterweight showdown between Darren Till and Stephen Thompson in the main event. The card airs on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Nelson, 29, has compiled a 7-3 record during his promotional tenure, with all but one of his triumphs coming by way of submission. Most recently, the Iceland native had a two-fight winning streak snapped in a first-round knockout loss against Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC Fight Night 113.

Magny, meanwhile, closed out his 2017 campaign with a decision victory over former interim champion Carlos Condit at UFC 219. The 30-year-old Elevation Fight Team representative is 13-5 with the Las Vegas-based organization and owns other notable wins over the likes of Johny Hendricks, Hector Lombard, Kelvin Gastelum and Tim Means.
