Can Neil Magny Bounce Back?

All eyes were on Neil Magny on August 1 at UFC 190, which was only three weeks ago, when he took on Demian Maia. People were ready to see whether he was ready for the step-up in competition, but found out that the jiu-jitsu of Maia was too much to handle. Magny was dominated in the fight and ended up being submitted in the second round. However, Magny did not take much damage and is now making the quick turnaround at UFC Fight Night 74 to face Erick Silva. All eyes wer on Magny to see if he was ready for the step-up in competition, but now all eyes will be on Magny to see if he can bounce back after his loss.

TUF Nations: Canada vs. Australia Finalists:

Chad Laprise will be looking to stay unbeaten in his mixed martial arts career against Francisco Trinaldo. At 11-0, TUF winner will look to improve to 4-0 in the UFC, and more importantly, show that he deserves to be in the talk of top fifteen lightweights.

Oliver Aubin-Mercier, who only has one loss, which was in TUF finale against Chad Laprise, will be taking on Tony Sims. In only his third UFC fight, Aubin-Mercier will look to show fans that his loss in the finale was a fluke and he has the potential to be a top lightweight fighter in the UFC.
