Kelvin Gastelum knows prior to entering the finals of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) that he’s not the favorite to win. Since the start of the season, Uriah Hall has been labeled as a potential title contender.
“I would agree I’m the heavy underdog and he’s the heavy favorite,” said Gastelum on FOX News Latino. “That’s fine, I don’t care. I respect his skills set obviously, I think it’ll be a great fight.”
On the show, Gastelum finished his last three opponents, with two not going past the opening round.
Hall had a highlight reel knockout in the quarterfinals and two finishes since.
The finalists meet on TUF 17 Finale later today, April 13. It comes from Las Vegas, NV’s Mandalay Bay Events Center.
