UFC is reportedly attempting to book experienced welterweights Neil Magny and Max Griffin against one another for their March 26th “Fight Night” card. The promotion is currently in the process of finalizing the fight, per Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.
The potential matchup was first reported by MagicM_MMA. Should the fight be made official, it would join a card that is set to happen at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
Griffin is currently on a three-fight winning streak. He beat a veteran in his last outing, defeating Carlos Condit via unanimous decision in July. The two earlier wins in Griffin’s streak were both stoppage wins.
