UFC 179 Fight Card: Neil Magny Goes For Win No. 5 In Brazil

ufc 179

Two more fights have been added to the October UFC 179 card, as Neil Magny meets William Macario and Fabricio Camoes takes on Josh Shockley.

Officials added the bouts to the October 25 card from Rio de Janerio, Brazil recently. The event features a headline fight between featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes.

Magny (12-3) appears in a race with Donald Cerrone for most wins in 2014, as he already has four victories since the calendar turned. The alum of The Ultimate Fighter defeated Alex Garcia recently, and also holds wins over Rodrigo de Lima, Tim Means and Gasan Umalatov.

Macario (7-1) earned a decision over Bobby Voelker to close out 2013 after suffering his first career loss to Leonardo Santos. That defeat came in the finals of TUF: Brazil 2.

Camoes (14-8-1) has just one UFC win in five fights and was removed from a planned bout with Gray Maynard after Maynard was needed to step in and fight Ross Pearson. Shockley (11-3) dropped his Octagon debut to Jason Saggo via TKO, snapping a four-fight win streak.
