Thundercat, ho! Craig White gets UFC call up, fights Neil Magny in Liverpool

MMA: UFC 207-Hendricks vs Magny Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) found a suitable band-aid for its UFC Fight Night 130 co-main event on FOX Sports 1, set to go down a week from Sunday night (May 27, 2018) inside Echo Arena in Liverpool, England.

Octagon newcomer Craig White, previously scheduled to throw hands at Cage Warriors 95 in London, will instead collide with longtime welterweight veteran Neil Magny, who was recently stranded by the injured Gunnar Nelson.

I can’t wait to hear Jorge Masvidal’s reaction.

White (14-7), known as “The Thundercat,” has captured four straight wins and all 14 of his professional victories have come by way of violent finish. Magny (20-6), meanwhile, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Carlos Condit at UFC 219 last December.

Hot take:

UFC Fight Night 130 will be headlined by the welterweight striking showdown pitting Stephen Thompson against local hero and non-cunt Darren Till. Elsewhere on the card, Eric Spicely and Darren Stewart collide for middleweight bragging rights.
