Neil Magny tied Roger Huerta for the modern-day record for wins in a calendar year, defeating William Macario Saturday night at UFC 179.
Magny, a semifinalist on The Utimate Fighter, started his UFC career just 1-2, including a pair of consecutive defeats. Now, he is on a five-fight win streak.
Using his reach and wrestling, Magny (13-3) landed a combo and followed it up with a takedown. After working some ground-and-pound, he postured up and finished off Macario, a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2.
Macario falls to 7-2 in his career.
