Magny Faces Kim in UFC 202 Bout

 

With three all-star welterweight matchups already set for UFC 202 in Las Vegas, the 170-pound division is taking center stage on August 20, and a fourth exciting clash has been added to the card at T-Mobile Arena, with Neil Magny set to battle "The Stun Gun," Dong Hyun Kim.

In the UFC 202 main event, Nate Diaz looks to repeat his March win over Conor McGregor in a welterweight rematch, and in the co-main event, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson faces Glover Teixeira. Also featured on the card are welterweight matchups between Demian Maia and Carlos Condit and Rick Story and Donald Cerrone.

One of the hottest welterweights on the planet, Colorado's Magny is 10-1 in his last 11 bouts, with three straight wins over Erick Silva, Kelvin Gastelum and Hector Lombard. Currently ranked seventh at 170 pounds, Magny will get another stiff challenge in the form of the ninth-ranked "Stun Gun," who has won six of his last seven, with his last four victories coming by knockout or submission.
