Check out the full fight video highlights of Neil Magny vs. Michael Chiesa from the UFC FIGHT ISLAND 8 main event.

The UFC FIGHT ISLAND 8 main event saw a ton of fun back and forth scrambles between the promotion’s #9 ranked, Neil Magny, and the #8 ranked, Michael Chiesa. The grappling exchanges were competitive, but Chiesa clearly had the edge. Magny had an inverted triangle locked up at one point, but he just couldn’t stop the takedowns and had spurts where he couldn’t get off of his back. All in all, it was a pretty fun scrap.
