community news, Kelvin Gastelum takes on Anderson Silva at UFC 212

Fresh off his TKO win over Vitor Belfort, Kelvin Gastelum will now meet Anderson Silva at UFC 212

Not even three days after his first-round TKO win over Vitor Belfort, Kelvin Gastelum already has another opponent lined up to continue his middleweight run, and it’s the one he has been asking for – the former UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva. Ana Hissa, from Combate, broke out the news.

The UFC then made it official a few minutes later:

Ever since he moved up to middleweight, Gastelum (12-2) has knocked out Tim Kennedy and Vitor Belfort. Before that, he also picked up a unanimous decision win over former welterweight champion, Johny Hendricks. His last loss was a split decision defeat to Neil Magny in November 2015.

Anderson Silva (34-8, 1 NC) had been winless since a TKO win over Stephan Bonnar in October 2012, until he scored a decision win over Derek Brunson at UFC 208, in February. The victory marks Anderson’s first win after losses to Chris Weidman, Daniel Cormier, Michael Bisping and a No Contest against Nick Diaz.

Kelvin Gastelum will meet Anderson Silva at UFC 212, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on June 3. The card will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and top contender, Max Holloway.
