Neil Magny has never had a nickname – until now.
In a post on his personal Facebook page on Friday, Magny (22-7 MMA, 15-6 UFC) announced he’ll now be introduced as “The Haitian Sensation,” starting at UFC 250.
“Ten years as a professional fighter and I’ve never had a nickname that stuck….until now,” Magny wrote. “I’m officially keeping the nickname ‘Haitian Sensation’”
The nickname will make its official debut Saturday when Magny takes on Anthony Rocco Martin (17-5 MMA, 9-5 UFC). The fight is currently slotted for the second on the pay-per-view main card.
Magny, 32, has won three out of his most recent four outings. At UFC 248 in March, Magny made a triumphant return after 16 months away from in-cage competition. A slight betting underdog, Magny upset Li Jingliang with a dominant unanimous decision.
UFC 250 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on UFC Fight Pass/ESPN+.
