Cerrone VS Gastelum: A Big Fight In The Big Apple

By | September 15, 2016

UFC 205 in New York is finally starting to shape up. One notable fight on the card will now be Donald Cerrone versus Kelvin Gastelum. The fight will take place at the world’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden, in New York but most importantly it will be the first ever UFC event held in New York. The fight itself was originally supposed to feature Robbie Lawler but after Lawler pulled out it will now feature Kevin Gastelum instead.
He will meet a very tough opponent in Cerrone who is enjoying being in the middle of a hot streak. He has earned consecutive wins against Alex Oliveira, Patrick Cote and Rick Story after moving up to welterweight earlier in the year. Gastelum is no scrub himself coming off a massive victory against Johny Hendricks at UFC 200. It is safe to say this will easily be the biggest bout for each fighter to date.
The fight itself will be widely watched and anticipated as it is expected to tell the world a lot about the future of the welterweight division. This is the third bout for UFC 205 to be announced so far after Evans VS Kennedy and Alves VS Iaquinta. More fights are expected to be announced soon.
