NeilVIG1UFC 163 will be held in Rio de Jeneiro, Brazil in August and our old friend Neil Magny will be on the show. According to reports, Magny (8-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will be facing TUF Brazil alum, Sergio Moraes (7-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in what is believed to be a fight on the preliminary card, which will air live on FX and Facebook.

Magny is most well known as a member of Team Carwin on TUF 16 and VigilanteMMA’s weekly guest spot as TUF correspondent. Although he was defeated in the TUF semi-finals by Mike Ricci, he bounced back with an impressive unanimous decision win over fellow cast mate Jon Manley.

Moraes is also coming off a win, following his submission win against Renee Forte at UFC 153, which evened his UFC record at 1-1. He lost to Cezar Ferreira in his promotional debut. The BJJ black belt will play the role of the home crowd favorite in Brazil where he will try to use his world class grappling skills to his advantage.

Magny has built a huge fan following on this site, so we plan to follow Neil’s path to UFC 163 very closely over the summer. We hope to get more on this fight as the event approaches.
