4. Kelvin Gastelum Should Consider Staying At Middleweight
Kelvin Gastelum has struggled to make the welterweight limit multiple times and this was the case last month when he missed weight for a scheduled welterweight bout with Donald Cerrone. UFC President Dana White then said that he would have to move up and stay at middleweight, and Gastelum had a successful fight at 185-pounds last night, knocking out former contender Tim Kennedy.
Prior to the fight, Gastelum said that he would dropping back down to welterweight after UFC 206, but perhaps he should consider staying at middleweight. The cut is easier on his body and he’s clearly able to perform well in the division.
