Kelvin Gastelum had been training for weeks to face fan-favorite Matt Brown in a welterweight matchup for the main-event of “UFC Fight Night 78”. The mixed martial arts gods struck again when Brown fell victim to injury and was forced to pull out of the main-event. Rather than scrap the fight altogether, Neil Magny threw his hat in the mix and offered to fight Gastelum on a moment’s notice. While Magny is receiving praise for offering to take the fight on short notice, Gastelum deserves some respect as well for having to change his gameplan from Brown’s unorthodox style to someone like Magny’s.

The two battled for twenty five minutes before having their fight decided by the judges. In the end, it was Mangy who would have his hand raised in victory by way of split decision. See what the world of mixed martial arts had to say about the fight below!
