UFC 171 Adds Rick Story vs. Kelvin Gastelum To Stacked Card

UFC 171 Adds Rick Story vs. Kelvin Gastelum To Stacked Card


UFC 171 is beginning to look like an absolute blockbuster of a card; headlined by a Welterweight title bout between Robbie Lawler and Johny Hendricks, the card also has some very exciting matches that could potentially provide a front runner for event of the year.

News has broken, via MixedMartialArts.com that TUF 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum will square off with heavy-hitting Rick Story in a Welterweight attraction the very same night. Gastelum beat season favorite Uriah Hall in their finale bout, and has since scored a slick submission win over Brian Melancon.

Story most recently beat Brian Ebersole in a concvincing three round stand off, and will look to improve on a UFC career that has seen him beat Johny Hendricks, Thiago Alves, Dustin Hazelett among others. A win at 171 could spell big things for either man, although at 7-0 Gastelum could well find himself being taken very seriously should he conquer ‘The Horror’.

So here is how the Dallas, Texas based card is shaping up thus far:

Welterweight title bout

Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler (title is vacant)

Main Card

Carlos Condit vs. Tyrone Woodley (170)

Jake Shields vs. Hector Lombard (170)

Thiago Silva vs. Ovince St-Preux (205)

Diego Sanchez vs. Myles Jury (155)


Tor Troeng vs. Robert McDaniel (185)

Will Campuzano vs. Darrell Montague (125)

Sean Spencer vs. Alex Garcia (170)

ED Note: Someone has it in for Jake Shields
