UFC 236: Kelvin Gastelum gets another shot at gold vs. Israel Adesanya

Might have to fight him in the future as well,” Gastelum said. On that late January day inside Kings MMA in Huntington Beach, Gastelum might have been talking about about the undefeated hot-shot middleweight by way of Nigeria, but his focus was mainly on middleweight champion Robert Whittaker. After an ill-fated trip to Melbourne to challenge Whittaker a...
