Neil Magny's quest to earn his seventh -- albeit quiet -- win inside the Octagon against Hyun Gyu Lim got off to a scary start after the American was rocked by right hand in the opening frame at UFC Fight Night 66 in Manila earlier today (Sat., May 16, 2015).
Showing his resolve, Neil recuperated and managed to escape an early submission attempt from the Korean-born fighter, as well.
But after finding his groove, Neil took his time to systematically pick apart his foe with a mix of strikes to end an unbelievably close and exciting round one.
Round two was all Magny as he used his striking, yet again, to set up a takedown which ultimately lead to a barrage of ground-and-pound that was too much for Lim. At this point, Lim was utterly exhausted and simply could not get Magny off of him.
After several hard shots, the referee had seen enough as he put an end to the fight after witnessing Lim receive over 20 unanswered blows to the head.
The win now gives the former The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) product the longest active winning streak in the welterweight division.
Who saw that coming?
