Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Following a dominant performance back in March, Neil Magny is expected to make his return against Rocco Martin in a welterweight bout at UFC 250 on June 6.

Multiple sources confirmed verbal agreements are in place for the fight when speaking to MMA Fighting on Thursday following an initial report from MMA Junkie.

Magny earned a unanimous decision over Li Jingliang in his return at UFC 248, which was his first fight back in more than a year. Magny is now 3-1 in his past four fights with his only loss coming to Santiago Ponzinibbio in 2018.

As for Martin, the American Top Team fighter has put together an impressive resume since returning to 170 pounds with a 5-1 record overall. Martin picked up wins over Jake Matthews and Sergio Moraes during that run with his most recent victory coming against Ramazan Emeev this past November.

Magny vs. Martin is expected to join the UFC 250 lineup, which is expected to be headlined by a women’s featherweight title fight between Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer.
