Welterweight Neil Magny (18-4-0) has another fight lined up, but this time at UFC 202. It won’t be against the Stun Gun, Dong Hyun Kim (21-3-1) as originally planned. Kim pulled out of the fight July 12th with an injury and replacing him is the streaking Lorenz Larkin (17-5-0, 1NC). It’s still another opportunity for Magny as he’s only lost once in eleven bouts since February of 2014.
