Kelvin Gastelum was hit with some bad news over the weekend, as he was fined and suspended by the Brazilian athletic commission after marijuana was found during a test.
Gastelum’s win over Vitor Belfort was also changed to a no-contest, but it sounds like he’ll be allowed to compete as soon as July.
Originally, the former Ultimate Fighter winner was to face Anderson Silva in June at UFC 212, but due to the suspension, he was removed.
Suspension accepted, but i will NEVER fight in Brazil again. All they want is $$$$
