UFC Fight Island 8 Full Results: Michael Chiesa gets a win over Neil Magny

UFC rolled out UFC Fight Island 8 from the Yas Island in Abu Dhabi last day. In the main event, Michael Chiesa managed to get the better of Neil Magny after a five-round battle and took home a unanimous decision victory.

With the win, Chiesa is currently on a four-fight winning streak having secured impressive wins over Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez, and Rafael Dos Anjos in his last four fights. In the post-fight interview, Chiesa called out Colby Covington as well.

"I’m just glad I was able to show some new wrinkles in my game... I showed guys I’m improving. I showed guys I’m dangerous. I definitely didn’t break Neil Magny. That would be a stupid thing to say. He’s an unbreakable guy. He’s as tough as they come.

His strength is cardio and I was able to stay on pace with him. We pushed each other to our limits. He’s a great human being and competitor. We’re both going to be better fighters after that fight. It feels good to get my first four-fight win streak in the UFC and get my first main event win. It’s surreal. I’m getting closer to my dream... I want to end this year as the number one contender. I want fights in the top five. I think Colby is the toughest fight for me stylistically, physically, and mentally,” Chiesa said after his victory.
