Welterweight Neil Magny (15-5-0) will step back into the octagon weeks after losing a one-sided decision to Demian Maia to face Brazilian Erick Silva (18-5-0, 1NC) at UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon August 23rd.
Silva’s original opponent Rick Story sustained an injury, creating the opening for Magny.
Magny had an excellent 2014 with a UFC record-tying five wins, building up to an overall seven-fight win streak before the loss to Maia.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Silva rebounded from a loss to Matt Brown in May of 2014 with two wins, the last win a submission finish over Josh Koscheck.
The main event features featherweights Max Holloway and Charles Oliviera.
