Michael Chiesa made a strong statement at UFC Fight Island 8 with his fourth straight win as a UFC welterweight.

Chiesa dominated veteran Neil Magny on Saturday at Fight Island, earning unanimous scores of 49-46 for a commanding performance on the feet and on the mat. Afterward, Chiesa called his shot with a request to fight ex-interim champ Colby Covington.

In the co-main event, The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 winner Warlley Alves made a successful return to the octagon by deflating the hype train of Mounir Lazzez.
