Neil Magny had his seven-fight win streak snapped by Demian Maia to start this month. Now, Magny will try to get right back on track when he faces Erick Silva next week at UFC Fight Night 74.
Magny will be replacing Rick Story in the planned co-main event for the August 23 card from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The card features Max Holloway vs. Charles Oliveira.
After putting together seven consecutive wins to push his overall record to 15-4, Magny was topped by Maia in Brazil on August 1. Silva (18-5) has won six of 10 UFC bouts during his career.
The fight change was first reported by The StarPhoenix.
