Anderson Silva – Kelvin Gastelum Bout Official for UFC’s Shanghai Event
By FCF Staff
As expected, Anderson Silva and Kelvin Gastelum will fight at the UFC’s inaugural event in Shanghai, China, November 25th. The promotion recently confirmed that the match-up will headline the upcoming card.
Silva and Gastelum were scheduled to fight earlier this year at UFC 212 in June, but Gastelum was pulled from the bout, after he received a USADA flag for marijuana. The former TUF winner is coming off a submission loss to Chris Weidman, which snapped Gastelum’s three fight, undefeated streak.
Silva, meanwhile, earned a decision win over Derek Brunson in his last outing, which was the former middleweight champ’s first win since 2012.
