    Per the twitter:

    Breaking: Neil Magny vs Claudio Henrique Da Silva has been verbally agreed upon for UFC Fight Night Auckland. More to come...

    Per 2on4 Sports - https://twitter.com/2on4Sports/status/467073209909538816


    Should be a good test to see what Silva could offer in the long term. I think he'll tap Magny. What say you?

    Not impressed by Magny at all. I feel like the guy moves a lot but so much of it is unnecessary and not effective at all.

    yeah, it was AWFUL but yet Scott managed to lose this fight. That tells much.

    Magny is no destroyer but he does things well, he should be able to easily outstrike the other dude and keep it standing. But it would do good for him to FINISH this fight. He wont get far with a winning streak of forgettable decisions. Since da Silva is a poor striker, Magny should go for broke later in the fight.

    This was originally Richard Walsh vs. da Silva. Not only are these scrubby matchups, but now a couple don't even feature Aussies :)

    Can't wait until Magny gets cut. Unless he drastically changes his style and becomes entertaining, he's taking up roster space.

    Its your typical Fight Pass Card. Not only that but in the 5 week span from June 28th through August 2nd they are putting on 8 shows.

    Main card

    Te-Huna vs Marquardt
    Hioki vs Oliveira
    Palelei vs Rosholt
    Whittaker vs Rhodes

    Prelims

    Villante vs O'Connell
    Magny vs da Silva
    Reyes vs Vaculik
    Indich vs Grujic


    My only problem is Indich getting another shot, seems like they want to guarantee another Australian in the UFC with that fight. As far as the lack of Australians, not much you can do when Perosh gets hurt and now im gonna assume Walsh is hurt. Dylan Andrews is also hurt.

    That's the 2nd fighter from the Cincinnati card fighting on the NZ card. Crazy how some guys are willing to step up on less then 2 months between fights while other guys need 6+ months between fights. I wish more guys would fight the Donald Cerrone way of as often as possible.
