Michael Chiesa Defeats Neil Magny by Unanimous Decision. Who is Next?

Michael “Maverick” Chiesa defeated Neil Magny at UFC Fight Island 8 by unanimous decision. There was no doubt when the final bell struck. It was going to the judge’s scorecards and the decision was going to be for Chiesa. He out grappled Magny in the five-round contest. Chiesa is now undefeated in the welterweight division with wins over Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez, Rafael Dos Anjos, and now Neil Magny.

The fight was a 49-46 decision on all of the judge’s scorecards. After the victory, Chiesa grabbed the mic and called out Colby Covington. Chiesa has earned himself a big fight that can not be denied. However, we all know the fight to make is between Covington and Jorge Masvidal.

There are still two great options for Chiesa. Demian Maia is looking for one more fight and after that grappling clinic Chiesa put on fight fans would love to see him do it against one of the greatest grapplers of all time.

Another exciting potential fight would be to put Chiesa in the octagon versus Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson. Thompson is currently the fifth-ranked fighter in the welterweight division and Chiesa is going to have to go through the top-ranked stars for a shot at the welterweight strap.
