The hardest working man in the fight business, welterweight contender Neil Magny, will step into the Octagon for the fifth time this year on November 21, as he replaces the injured Matt Brown in the five-round main event of UFC Fight Night in Monterrey, Mexico, and faces Kelvin Gastelum.
The card will air on FOX Sports 1, live from Arena Monterrey. Also featured are the featherweight bout between Ricardo Lamas and Diego Sanchez, a flyweight showdown pitting Henry Cejudo against Jussier Formiga, and the TUF Latin America 2 finals.
Winner of three of his four 2015 bouts, and 8-1 in his last nine, the 12th-ranked Magny last stepped in on short notice in August and pulled off a three-round win over Erick Silva. Now the Coloradan will square off with the 15th-ranked Gastelum, who is looking to move up a few notches if he can score a victory later this month.
