Report: Demian Maia-Neil Magny Booked for UFC 190

By Mike Fridley Jun 9, 2015
According to a report from Brazilian Magazine Tatame, Ultimate Fighting Championship welterweight contenders Demian Maia and Neil Magny will lock horns at UFC 190.

The bout has yet to be acknowledged by the UFC, but multiple outlets are now citing sources that the draw is a done deal.

Headlined by Ronda Rousey versus Bethe Correia, UFC 190 goes down Aug. 1 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Maia, 20-6, will enter the contest on the strength of two consecutive wins against Ryan LaFlare and Alexander Yakovlev. The 37-year-old Brazilian has submitted nine opponents in his professional career and is considered one of the game’s most technical grapplers.

Simply put, few fighters carry as much momentum in the UFC as Magny (15-3), who is riding a seven-fight winning streak. The Grudge Training Center representative is 10 years younger than Maia, and has four finishes in his recent run.
