Heading into his second fight inside the octagon, Chimaev has had problems landing a fight. The Chechnyan fighter has called out several fighters including the likes of Stephen Thompson, and Nate Diaz.

Neil Magny is an impressive striker with a solid ground game. He dominated Robbie Lawler for the better part of the entire fight and showed great ground game against the former champion. Additionally, Magny has a credible submission game to back his skill-set and could be a great threat to Khamzat Chimaev’s rise.
