Neil Magny: Fighter Profile

All you need to know about American fighter Neil Magny, including his record, last fight, age, and more.

Neil Magny record

Neil Magny is 29-11 in his mixed martial arts career. He has won eight of his bouts by knockout, four by submission, and 17 via decision.

Of his 11 losses, two have come via knockout, six have been by submission and three by a decision.

Magny is a highly-respected fighter who has been active in the sport since 2010. He first came to prominence after his successful audition for the popular reality TV series The Ultimate Fighter, and he won seven of his eight MMA bouts before signing with the UFC in early 2013. 

His time in UFC did not begin too well as Magny lost two of his first three fights - going down to Sergio Moraes and Seth Baczynski - before embarking on a seven-fight winning streak as he began to make a name for himself in the promotion.

He suffered a setback when losing to Demian Maia in August 2015 and inconsistency has plagued the 'Haitian Sensation' over the past eight years.

While impressively beating the likes of Kiichi Kunimoto and Lim Hyun-gyu to earn Performance of the Night honours, he somewhat surprisingly lost to Lorenz Larkin via TKO in the first round in summer 2016.

Magny was able to bounce back quickly, though, when seeing off Johny Hendricks that December in a catchweight fight at UFC 207 in Las Vegas.

There was controversy in the build-up when Hendricks failed to make the weight, coming in over 173.5 lbs. As a result, Magny received 20 percent of Hendricks' purse and duly won their scrap by unanimous decision.

A familiar pattern of some victories, mixed in with regular defeats, followed, but Magny has proven his durability and skill in UFC over the years.

One of his career highlights was his win over Max Griffin in March 2022, which saw him tie with Georges St-Pierre for the most wins in the UFC welterweight division with 19 in total.

He has also seen off talented rivals like Anthony Rocco Martin and Robbie Lawler since 2020 and, although he followed up his win over Daniel Rodriguez in November 2022 with a disappointing defeat to Gilbert Burns, he was quickly back celebrating as he then responded immediately to beat Philip Rowe.

That split-decision success over Rowe preceded his August 2023 bout when he fought Ian Machado Garry at UFC 292 in Boston and lost via unanimous decision.

Magny bounced back yet again, entering a UFC 297 fight against Canada's Mike Malott as the underdog but winning via knockout in the third round.
