Neil Magny signs new UFC contract extension following win over Hector Lombard

Free agency is so overrated.

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Neil Magny won't be hitting the open market anytime soon. That's because MMA Fighting is reporting that the talented Welterweight inked a four-fight contract extension to remain with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for the foreseeable future.

Neil is currently riding a three-fight win streak which includes his most recent victory over Hector Lombard, which occurred at UFC Fight Night 85 two weeks ago.

In fact, the 170-pound star has won 10 of his last 11 bouts inside the Octagon, taking out the likes of Kelvin Gastelum and Erick Silva, just to name a few.

The 28-year old has been quietly building up his resume and climbing up the rankings, with his lone loss coming over the last two years coming at the hands of Demian Maia.

As for what's next for Neil, that remains to be seen. But, it's safe to say he'll get a top five opponent following his latest run. Something that should inch him closer to a much-desired title shot.
