Kelvin Gastelum returned to the cage tonight (Wed., Aug. 28, 2013) to take on late replacement Brian Melancon on the main card of the UFC Fight Night 27: "Condit vs. Kampmann 2" Fox Sports 1 event in Indianapolis, Indiana. Melancon was stepping in for Paulo Thiago.
That's because Gastelum made short work of his foe, landing a hard uppercut that put Melancon down and had him hurt badly. He was hurt badly enough, in fact, that Gastelum immediately locked in a rear-naked choke that got a tap in short order.
Yeah, that'll do sir.
Are we looking at the next big player in the 170-pound division?
