ufc fight night 78

Neil Magny will once again step up on short notice, agreeing to face Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC Fight Night 78 this month. Magny replaces Matt Brown, who suffered an ankle injury.

Set for November 21 from Monterrey Arena in Mexico, the majority of the action will air live on FOX Sports 1.
