Call him the "hardest working man in the fight business."

It's the fifth appearance of the year for the busy American, who is 3-1 in 2015. Magny, 16-4, also fought five times in 2014, winning all of his appearances.
The No. 12-ranked Magny last stepped in on short notice in August, pulling off a three-round win over Brazilian Erick Silva. Now, the Colorado native will square off with No. 15-ranked Gastelum, who is looking to prove he can make the grade at 170 pounds after flunking the weigh-ins at UFC 180.
The FOX Sports 1-televised card (see it here) will also feature a Featherweight bout between Ricardo Lamas and Diego Sanchez, a Flyweight showdown pitting Henry Cejudo against Jussier Formiga, and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America 2" finals.
