    Per the Ariel Helwani show this Tuesday Morning, Neil Magny give his thoughts on the Chimaev fight falling through, and his though process as well as his Frustratation that he got picked over Chimaev AFTER his Manager basically said it's a done deal.
    Starts at 2:11

    "Hahaha I have no idea, I mean I thought it was a done deal, I literally got on the phone with my Manger on Thursday and he's like "Hey man it's a done deal we got you the Fight"....On my way home from the Gym I start getting notifications that he's fighting Leon Edwards, and I'm just scratching my head like "What" how did that even come about haha, like as far as I knew Leon Edwards wasn't willing to fight a guy that wasn't ranked below #5 so much so that he wasn't willing to fight a guy that wasn't ranked at all, so the fact that fight even came about, I was just dumbfounded"

    At 3:00 Minutes, when asked why he think's the Fight fell through, and if he got an explanation, he gives his Hot Take.

    "No not at all, i mean the only thing I can possibly think of that caused this fight not to go through is HIS team thought it was a better match up for him, um, I'm not gonna tut my own horn and say that Fighting the #8 is a better deal than fighting the #3 guy, but I'm pretty sure his team might have thought that Leon Edwards was the easier fight for him, he matched up better against Leon Edwards than he would have against me"

    Oh Boy lol, the rest of the Interview is pretty interesting, and it's really not that long. The Dislike Ratio on the Video is almost 60/40 so I figured some of you guys would have fun with this one, so I did my thing. Now I will say I think he makes some good points about Leon bitching that he wouldn't fight guys Ranked below him, so he is understandably justified being angry that he got skipped over, but him saying Leon Edwards is an easier than him and that's why they ultimately took the fight is a Mr. Fantastic REACH

    <36>

    I don't mind Magny, and I'm not a fan of Leon but just...No lol. Thoughts? enjoy Sherbros.

    Neil Magny is the ultimate gatekeeper. All he beats are prospects or washed up people and the second he takes a SLIGHT step up he gets flattened. I respect dude but sheeesh don’t be like that man smh

    Neil Magny is a fringe top 10 gatekeeper, Leon is a legit title contender. Gtfo here Neil.

    None of that seemed like a heel turn at all to me... I haven't watched the video but going from your quotes he really wasn't talking any shit.

    He’s just pissed that the fight that could have launched his career in a big way fell through. Look at all the cheap press Meerschaert got off the back of Chimaev.

    Chimaev will smash Magny anyway imo if ever they fought. I remember even Maia tapped him out.

    I know haha, he got KO'ed and dominated by Ponzi BADLY, and Khamzat has shown he has power, I don't think that fight would have went well for Magny, and he's shown to struggle against grapplers and keeping people at range.
