An intriguing welterweight pairing between the #8 ranked contender, ‘The Haitian Sensation’ Neil Magny, and the streaking, Max ‘Pain’ Griffin has been added to UFC Fight Night Columbus on March 26. The event is scheduled to take place from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Last featuring in May at UFC Vegas 26, welterweight division mainstay, Magny returned to the winner’s enclosure with a unanimous decision success against kickboxing talent, Geoff Neal.
Unbeaten in his last three consecutive outings, Santa Barbara striker, Griffin last took home a unanimous decision win against former interim UFC welterweight champion, the now-retired, Carlos Condit at UFC 264 in July. News of the welterweight clash was first reported by Twitter user, MagicM MMA.
Before his unanimous judging win over Neal, Magny headlined UFC Fight Island 8 in Abu Dhabi, UAE last January – seeing his three-fight winning run halted by the grappling talents of Michael Chiesa.
A UFC alum since February 2013, Magny has managed to secure an eye-catching 18 promotional victories in that time.
The Illinois native has previously handed losses to the likes of Tim Means, Erick Silva, Kelvin Gastelum, Hector Lombard, Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit, Li Jingliang, and Robbie Lawler.
18-8 as a professional, Griffin added Condit to prior victories over both Song Kenan, and Ramiz Brahimaj.
Debuting against former interim welterweight champion, Colby Covington at UFC 202 in August 2016, Griffin dropped a third round knockout loss, before then grabbing wins over Erick Montano, Mike Perry, as well as Zelim Imadaev.
UFC Fight Night Columbus is slated to take place on March 26. from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio – with a light heavyweight main event between former undisputed champion, Jan Blachowicz, and Aleksandar Rakic slated to take main event honors.
