We have a pivotal fight in the Welterweight division, as Neil “Haitian Sensation” Magny takes on Max “Pain” Griffin. A winner of four of his last five fights, Magny has been one of the most consistent Welterweights for over the last six years. Checking in at 9th in the rankings, Magny remains in good standings. However, he will need to make a run in a stacked Welterweight division to stand out. Meanwhile, Griffin comes into this fight a winner of three straight. Having started his UFC tenure 3-6, Griffin has righted the ship and has been presented a huge opportunity. A chance to knock off a top ten opponent.

As for a prediction, I have Magny winning. While Griffin has been on a tear of late, this is a step up in competition. One in which Griffin has been presented with before and hasn’t quite been able to get over. Griffin is a good boxer and wrestler, who is one of the more durable fighters in the Welterweight division. However, Magny is a neutralizer. Always coming into a fight with a game plan, Magny is one of the more cerebral fighters to step inside the octagon. With excellent size, cardio for days and a well rounded game, Magny will attack your weakness from start to finish. There’s a reason why he’s won eighteen fights in the UFC. So with that said, look for Magny to outpoint and outmuscle Griffin against the cage, winning via decision.
