UFC 219: Neil Magny Outlines Why He’s “Excited” to Face Carlos Condit
By FCF Staff
Following his quick loss to Rafael dos Anjos in September, Neil Magny asked the UFC to book him for another high stakes, fight, and the welterweight was granted his wish.
Magny (19-6) has been scheduled to fight longtime contender, Carlos Condit, as the two will battle at UFC 219, December 30th. In a recent post at UFC.com, the rugged veteran had this to say about facing “The Natural Born Killer”:
“To get a guy like Carlos Condit who I respect and watched for years and years, this is the kind of fight that is going to force me to get back in the gym and force me to bring my ‘A’ Game, so let’s do it. I’m excited for it.”
“I’ve been watching Carlos Condit for years, so there is nothing that he’s going to do that is going to surprise me; it’s all about the work and effort that I’ve been putting in for the last few months and going out there and making it count,” he says. “It’s going to be me executing what I’ve been working on and putting on the show I know I’m capable of putting on; that’s what I’m most looking forward to.
“There are no excuses: I’m well prepared; my body is right and my mind is right, so let’s go out there and have a great night.”
Condit (30-10), meanwhile, will be fighting for the first time since August, 2016, when he was quickly submitted by Demian Maia.
UFC 219 will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
