Neil Magny Finally Gets New Opponent for UFC Fight Night in Liverpool
It turns out Neil Magny will still compete at UFC Fight Night in Liverpool after the promotion found him a late notice replacement just 12 days out from the event.
British welterweight Craig White will step into replace Gunnar Nelson, who was forced off the card a few weeks ago with a knee injury.
UFC officials announced the new matchup on Tuesday.

White comes to the UFC with a 14-7 record while currently riding a four fight win streak. White most recently competed under the Cage Warriors banner in England where he was expected to compete for their welterweight title in the near future.
Now White will face Magny at the UFC’s first ever event in Liverpool on May 27.
