Neil Magny vs. Anthony Rocco Martin added to UFC 250 lineup

A welterweight bout between Neil Magny and Anthony Rocco Martin is the latest addition to June’s UFC 250 lineup.

MMA Junkie confirmed with multiple people close to the situation that Magny (22-7 MMA, 15-6 UFC) and Martin (17-5 MMA, 9-5 UFC) have agreed to the matchup. The people requested anonymity because UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

UFC 250 takes place June 6. The event does not have an official location or venue, but it’s expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass.

Magny made his return to competition from a career-long layoff in March when he outpointed Li Jingliang at UFC 248. He was previously on the sidelined due to a USADA suspension in which he was eventually cleared of wrongdoing. With 15 wins in the welterweight division, Magny trails just Georges St-Pierre (19) and Matt Brown (16) for most in history.

Martin, meanwhile, gets the change of opponent he desired after a matchup with David Zawada was called off the UFC’s April 25 event due to the coronavirus pandemic. After getting mixed results at lightweight, Martin returned to 170 pounds in April 2018 and has gone 5-1 since.

The latest UFC 250 lineup now includes:

  • Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer
  • Devin Clark vs. Alonzo Menifield
  • Ian Heinisch vs. Gerald Meerschaert
  • Jussier Formiga vs. Alex Perez
  • Charles Byrd vs. Maki Pitolo
  • Neil Magny vs. Anthony Rocco Martin
