Colby Covington has a problem with that weird, unexplained growth protruding from Kelvin Gastelum’s neck (Pic)

Tonight, the role of Professor Quirrell will be played by Kelvin Gastelum.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In the case of UFC 234 headliner Kelvin Gastelum, it may be worth one trip to Dr. Pimple Popper.

I’m not sure how to explain that weird, unexplained growth emerging from the back of his neck, captured during his staredown with Robert Whittaker, but when they touch gloves this Saturday night (Feb. 9, 2019) in Melbourne, “The Reaper” might have visions of an atmosphere on mars.

“Open your minnnnnnnnnd...”

Not surprisingly, welterweight troublemaker, Colby Covington, took the opportunity to make fun of Gastelum’s boil, because “Chaos” isn’t fighting and has nothing better to do than scour the internet for opportunities like the one embedded above.

Because that’s what fighters with “big balls” do.

Gastelum can get the last laugh by winning the 185-pound title “Down Under,” which would undoubtedly put him into a summer 2019 title defense against the winner of Anderson Silva vs. Israel Adesanya, who also throw hands at UFC 234.
