Magny said this to lowkickmma.com about his upcoming fight against Rodriguez, “He’s a very good southpaw boxer, southpaws tend to give a lot of guys difficulties... He’s going to have a chip on his shoulder, he’s going to be thinking I have to go out there and prove to the world that I did win my last fight. Everyone is always looking for a reason to rule you out, oh yeah that guy is history now. It’s up to me to go out there and show everyone that I am still that dude.”

How much does motivation play a part in this fight? Rodriguez is coming off a controversial split-decision win and he won’t want to leave any doubt this time around. Magny really doesn’t have the power to hurt Rodriguez so this should be a fight where Rodriguez is in control. Magny has seemingly been around forever, and he is one of the most experienced fighters in history. He is tied with Georges St. Pierre for the most welterweight wins in UFC history. Magny used to have finishing power, but he hasn’t won by stoppage in four years. I think there are a couple of ways to go in this fight. I think Rodriguez is the better fighter, as Magny’s best days are behind him. I think you can make a case that Rodriguez should be favored in this fight, so we are getting a bargain on him at even-money odds.This could also be a fight that goes the distance so you could also hedge this fight a little bit. I can’t see Magny getting any type of stoppage win, so there is a good chance this fight goes the distance unless Rodriguez wins by stoppage. I will also play the rounds in this fight to go over the total.
