Ultimate Fighter 16 semifinalists will square off at UFC 157 in Anaheim, California, as welterweights Neil Magny and Jon Manley will climb into the Octagon and throw down on February 23. Both fighters have a professional record of 7-1, though Manley is riding a two-fight winning streak in comparison to Magny’s lone victory.
On TUF 16, Magny was finished in the first round by finalist Mike Ricci by knockout and Manley fought Colton Smith to a Unanimous Decision. Ricci and Smith fight this Saturday in Las Vegas to see who will be crowned this season’s champion.
Sources with knowledge of the bout confirmed that Neil Magny and Jon Manley will meet at UFC 157. Both Magny and Manley lost in the semifinals of this past Friday’s regular-season finale of Season 16 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” which airs on FX.
