Magny battled against Rodriguez’s heavy hands throughout their three-round co-main event. In the third round, he was able to grip onto the veteran’s neck near the fence after originally threatening an anaconda choke.
Magny decided for a D’Arce choke after knocking Rodriguez to the ground and changing his hold. He then grabbed Rodriguez’s leg and compelled the submit in the last round.
Li Jingliang was famously robbed against Daniel Rodriguez and was watching at home. Following the finish he tweeted:
