Who wins the Neil Magny vs. Rafael Dos Anjos fight, and why?

FRANK HYDEN, MMATorch Columnist

I think Dos Anjos wins a close decision. I think Magny starts off strong, but that RDA wears him down with his relentless style and pressure. I don’t think he’ll stop Magny, who’s tough, but I think he takes the final two rounds and earns the decision victory to further cement his name in the welterweight division.

RDA is slipping in my eyes. He’s had some brutal performances recently and has only one victory in his last three fights. Magny on the other hand looked very impressive at UFC 207 against Johny Hendricks. Overall, RDA is just a good match-up for him which is why I think he takes it. That said, I’m going with Neil Magny via decision.

Rafel Dos Anjos wins via late round stoppage. I think Dos Anjos will look to take Magny down to work some ground and pound.

This is Rafael Dos Anjo’s second fight in the welterweight division. This time around he’s going to struggle with the reach and height advantage that his opponent possess. Neil Magny should go for the take down early and often and eventually get the submission or decision victory.
