An injury has forced Rick Story (18-8 MMA) to withdraw from his scheduled UFC Fight Night 74 co-main event bout with Erick Silva (18-5 MMA).
Replacing Story on short-notice will be fellow welterweight Neil Magny (15-4 MMA), who will be looking to rebound after suffering a submission loss to Demian Maia eleven days ago at the UFC 190 event in Brazil.
Prior to his loss to Maia, Magny had put together an impressive seven-fight win streak, with four of those victories coming by way of stoppage.
Meanwhile, Erick Silva will be looking to extend his current win streak to three in a row when he squares off with Magny in Saskatoon. “The Tiger” was most recently seen in action at March’s UFC Fight Night 62 event, where he scored a first-round submission victory over veteran Josh Koscheck.
UFC Fight Night 74 takes place Sunday August 23 live from the SaskTel Center in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The event is headlined by a key featherweight bout betweeen Max Holloway and Charles Oliveira.
