The first loss that Neil Magny suffered in his MMA career was against Andrew Trace on 21st July 2011 via a Guillotine Choke. His second loss would come against Mike Ricci at the Ultimate Fighter season 16 semifinals. Magny would go on to win his next two fights but would end up with another two-fight losing skid against Sergio Moraes via. a triangle choke in August of 2013 at UFC 163 and Seth Baczynski via. a unanimous decision on November of the same year at UFC Fight Night 31.

The Haitian Sensation then went on an impressive 7-fight win streak over the next 15 months, but would ultimately get the streak broken by Damien Maia at UFC 190. He recovered from the loss with a three-fight win streak in the span of the year, but would ultimately succumb to Lorenz Larkin at UFC 202, via TKO. Magny would go on to win one more fight but would lose the next against former lightweight champion, Rafael Dos Anjos, at UFC 215.

The no.13 ranked UFC welterweight’s 8th loss came via KO against Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC Fight Night 140 in 2018. He would build up a three-fight winning streak which would be broken by Michael Chiesa at UFC on ESPN 20 by unanimous decision in 2021. In typical Magny fashion, the 36-year-old would manage to win two more, then lose against Shavkat Rakhmonov in June of 2023. His 11th career loss came against a dominant Gilbert Burns at UFC 283 via a first round submission.

Neil Magny and Ian Machado Garry exchanged some heated trash talk in the buildup to their UFC 292 clash. The 36-year-old fighter stated that he would give Garry a “whooping that you give your son to teach him about life.” This comment by Magny led the young Irishman to term him as a “child abuser”. This led to a really bad backlash coming the way of Magny.

The UFC veteran revealed in an interview, that the comments that Garry made had plenty of consequences for him. He revealed the predicament he was left in, saying “There were screenshots(of the comments) being taken and put into apps and things like that would be admissible in court where I’m literally fighting for custody of my children.”
