TUF 16 Vets Neil Magny and Jon Manley to Battle at UFC 157
By FCF Staff
Although many of the competitors from the recent TUF 16 Season will not transition right into the UFC, the promotion has announced that semifinalists Neil Magny and John Manley will fight at UFC 157 on February 23rd.
Magny (7-1) was eliminated from TUF 16 due to a stoppage loss at the hands of Mike Ricci, after winning his first two bouts in the competition.
Manley (7-1), on the other hand, fell by unanimous decision in the semifinals to the show’s eventual winner Colton Smith.
UFC 157 will be hosted by Anaheim’s Honda Center and will feature women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey taking on Liz Carmouche in the main event.
The card will also included a light-heavyweight bout between former champ Lyoto Machida and former Strikeforce champion Dan Henderson.
