Johny Hendricks vs. Neil Magny added to UFC 207 Dec 30. |
Hendricks (17-5) is currently in the midst of the worst slump of his UFC career, having lost three of his four bouts since he defeated Robbie Lawler at UFC 171 to claim the vacant welterweight title. The 33-year-old Hendricks suffered the first back-to-back losses of his career over that time, starting with a nasty first-round knockout at the hands of Stephen Thompson in February and continuing with a unanimous decision loss to Kelvin Gastelum at UFC 200.
Magny (18-5), on the other hand, saw his torrid run through the welterweight ranks come to a violent end at UFC 202 when he suffered a first-round TKO loss to Lorenz Larkin.
Prior to the setback, Magny was one of the division’s hottest fighters, winning 10 of his 11 fights since 2014. Included in that run were victories over Gastelum, Hector Lombard, Tim Means, and Erick Silva.
