Kelvin Gastelum has reportedly been suspended for six months by the New York Commission, after failing to show up for the UFC 205 weigh-ins.

Gastelum was supposed to fight Donald Cerrone on November 12th, but the fighter withdrew from the contest, after it was determined he was not going to make weight. ESPN is reporting that the commission has decided to suspend Gastelum for six months, since the TUF 17 winner didn’t show up for the weigh-ins.

Gastelum’s management has informed the outlet that they plan to appeal.

The 25 year-old Gastelum, who has had issues making 170 in the past, is coming off a decision win over Johny Hendricks in July.

Update: according to a report from MMA Fighting, Gastelum’s suspension is an administration suspension, and as a result, other jurisdictions could allow Gastelum to fight.
