Jacare Souza vs Kelvin Gastelum full fight video preview for UFC 224 co-main event

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its middleweight showdown between current division contenders Ronaldo Souza and Kelvin Gastelum, who collide in the UFC 224 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event TONIGHT (May 12, 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Souza (25-5, 1 NC) is fresh off a first-round drubbing of Derek Brunson at UFC Charlotte back in January, his second win over the top 185-pound contender in as many tries. Gastelum (14-3, 1 NC), meanwhile, is coming off a knockout win over Michael Bisping at UFC Shanghai last November.

This matchup will surely clear up the 185-pound championship race, as it’s easy to assume the victor will get next dibs on the middleweight hardware. Of course, it will be a bit of a waiting game, as division kingpin Robert Whittaker still has to defend his title against Yoel Romero at UFC 225 in July.
