UFC 206 went down live last night (Saturday December 10, 2016) from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and it featured a great middleweight showdown between Kelvin Gastelum and Tim Kennedy.
Gastelum, the No. 11-ranked welterweight in the UFC, unfortunately couldn’t make 170 pounds for his previously scheduled bout with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in New York last month, and was forced to pull out of the contest altogether.
When Kennedy was left without a dancing partner for UFC 206 after Rashad Evans was forced to pull out, Gastelum gladly moved up 15 pounds to take on the special forces sniper.
Kennedy had not competed since 2014 in a third round knockout loss to current No. 1-ranked middleweight Yoel Romero. Unfortunately for Kennedy the former Ultimate Fighter winner, Gastelum, was at the top of his game in Toronto, and was able to put away the UFC veteran in the third round.
