Maia vs. Magny Set for UFC 190 in Brazil

 

One of the UFC's most sizzling hot streaks will be put to the test once more on August 1 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, as Neil Magny, winner of seven straight, takes on fellow welterweight contender Demian Maia in a UFC 190 bout at the HSBC Arena.
 
UFC 190 is headlined by the UFC women's bantamweight title fight between Ronda Rousey and Bethe Correia and also features the highly-anticipated rematch between Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Rogerio Nogueira.

Fresh off back-to-back Performance of the Night efforts against Kiichi Kunimoto and Hyun Gyu Lim, Colorado's Magny is rapidly rising up the welterweight ladder. Former world middleweight title challenger Demian Maia is on a hot streak of his own in his new division though, as he is coming off consecutive wins over Alexander Yakovlev and Ryan LaFlare.
