Highlights! Watch Neil Magny's come-from-behind finish of Hyun Gyu Lim at UFC Fight Night 66

Jon Jones, Demetrious Johnson, Chris Weidman, Jose Aldo and ... Neil Magny?

Indeed, the Grudge Training Center disciple launched himself into distinguished company earlier this afternoon (Sat., May 16, 2015) when he finished Hyun Gyu Lim via technical knockout in round two at UFC Fight Night 66, which emanated from Mall of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.

Magny now boasts seven consecutive wins inside the Octagon, which is good enough to tie him with Raphael Assuncao and Donald Cerrone for the longest active streaks behind the aforementioned champions.

However, it wasn't easy.

Magny had to weather a rather rough South Korean storm early, as "Ace" came out of the gate strong. Lim would clobber Magny to the ground and wobble him, but the second round was an entirely different story. Many shook out the cobwebs and came out gunning, setting up the eventual $50,000 ground-and-pound finish with a beautiful throw.

Already ranked No. 15 at Welterweight, it's crystal clear that Magny needs a Top 10 opponent next to determine whether or not he is a potential 170-pound contender or just another pretender.
