Kelvin Gastelum picks up a big win over legend Vitor Belfort via a first round stoppage.
Kelvin Gastelum left the crowd in attendance in stunned silence when he stopped legend Vitor Belfort. The TUF 17 alum was sharp through the minute of action, winning by via TKO.
What was the high point of the fight?
Even though the entire fight only lasted more than a minute, it was action-packed all-throughout. Both fighters had their moments landing big punches, but it was the younger Gastelum who proved to be better in the exchanges.
Gastelum dropped “The Phenom” twice, with the second one sealing the stoppage victory for him.
Where do these two go from here?
Belfort says he wants to fight out the last fight in his contract in Brazil. It should be the logical move for the 39-year-old Belfort, who is now on his third straight loss.
Gastelum, meanwhile, intends to face Anderson Silva for what he called his “legends ass-whooping tour.” It could prove to be a good match-up for him, given his current momentum, and a victory would be a huge feather in his cap.
Watch it now, later or never?
It was an excellent stand-up fight, which always proves to be a draw for both casuals and hardcore fans.
