UFC Fight Night 27: Kelvin Gastelum Vs. Brian Melancon

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Brian Melancon

Following that battle of ex-TUF winners, the most recent winner of the show makes his welterweight debut, as Kelvin Gastelum (6-0) takes on Brian Melancon (7-2). Gastelum won the title at middleweight, while Melancon has picked up two straight victories.

Round 1: Nice stiff left lands by Gastelum, and Melancon answers back with his own. And, just like that, Gastelum takes him down. Gastelum unloads with a flurry, quickly takes the back and locks in a rear-naked choke. Maybe this kid is for real. What a resounding performance, especially on the heels of the first three fights.
