Neil Magny vs Phil Rowe added for UFC Jacksonville in June

Veteran welterweight Neil Magny will compete on June 24 in Jacksonville for the second time this year against rival Phil Rowe.

The featherweight contenders Josh Emmett and Ilia Topuria will be the event's featured fighters, and the #11-ranked Magny will try to recover from the terrible setback he experienced in Brazil in January at the fight.

The unranked Phil Rowe will share the cage with "The Haitian Sensation" inside the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena, according to reports from MMA Junkie's Nolan King and Farah Hannoun.

Magny and Rowe will travel to Florida the following month with different objectives thanks to the booking.

Magny (27-10), a longtime challenger, will be hoping for a strong showing. The 35-year-old made an unfortunate journey to Rio de Janeiro earlier this year, where he lost to the #5-ranked Gilbert Burns via submission in the first round.

He will aim to regain the form that saw him force the highly regarded Daniel Rodriguez to submit in November at UFC Vegas 64 when he faces Rowe. The inability to do so could result in "The Haitian Sensation" going on its first losing streak since 2013.

Rowe (10-3), who has climbed the welterweight ladder with the help of three straight victories since losing his promotional debut to Gabe Green in 2021, will be the one aiming to break him out of that slump.
