Magny steps in for injured Brown to face Gastelum at TUFLA2

Kelvin Gastelum (12-1-0)’s  return to the welterweight division was on hold after #5th-ranked “The Immortal” Matt Brown (22-13-0) announced a late injury Tuesday that prevented him from fighting at the Latin America 2 version of the The Ultimate Fighter November 26th in Monterrey, Mexico.

However, 12th-ranked Neil Magny (16-5-0) stepped up on short notice to save the fight.

Welcome back to The Crossfire.
