Neil Magny

Neil Magny was born on August 03, 1987 in Dolton, Illinois, United States, United States, is American Mixed Martial Artist. Neil Magny is an American Mixed martial Artist (MMA) who currently competes in the welterweight category of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Born and brought up in Brooklyn, New York, Neil Magny is one of the most known fighters signed under the UFC promotion. Being a professional MMA fighter was never quite the plan for Neil as he was studying to become a criminal lawyer in college but something about the sport attracted him and he went all out with his desires. He had nothing to regret as he kicked off his career with consecutive victories for different promotions. His growing reputation as a skilled MMA fighter brought him to the UFC later in his career and he made his debut against Jon Manley in February 2013. His career has seen many ups and downs during its course, but Neil’s inner strength, emerging from a very tough upbringing, held him strong during the difficult times. His three times ‘Performance of the Night’ bonuses along with one time ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus award, is a testimony to his talent. He is presently at the #8 rank in the UFC Welterweight division.

Neil Magny’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
