New, comments

Former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker will make his return to the Octagon against fellow 185-pound contender Kelvin Gastelum in the UFC Vegas 24 five-round main event on Sat. night (April 17, 2021) inside APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, airing on both ESPN and ESPN+.

Both fighters came face-to-face at the conclusion of the UFC Vegas 24 weigh-in event, which was not without its share of hijinks (get full results and video here). In the promotion's co-main event, lightweight veterans Jeremy Stephens and Drakkar Klose also bumped bridges to make things official.

Which finished with a hard shove from “Lil’ Heathen.”

Nothing left to do now except fight.
