Two talented welterweights, Neil Magny and Phil Rowe, have been set to face-off at the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in UFC Jacksonville on June 24th. Magny, who previously suffered a loss to Gilbert Burns in January at UFC 283, is now returning to the ring aiming for redemption.
Though the defeat brought his record to 3-2 in his last five bouts, Magny has achieved notable victories against opponents such as Max Griffin and Daniel Rodriguez while facing setbacks to top contenders Burns and Shavkat Rakhmonov.
On the other hand, Rowe’s current three-fight win streak features remarkable performances with three knockouts against his opponents Niko Price, Jason Witt, and Orion Cosce. Furthermore, Rowe’s UFC Contender Series wins led to his current 3-1 octagon record.
This welterweight clash is only one of the numerous matches to be held at UFC Jacksonville, also featuring a featherweight event between Josh Emmett and Ilia Topuria as the main event.
