Gastelum: I'm working towards being a champ


Kelvin Gastelum was the unexpected winner of the Ultimate Fighter 17 and has been impressive since debuting officially. After a lengthy lay off for surgery, he hopes to return in 2014 and start working his way to a title shot:

“I’ve got somebody in mind, but I’m not going to be calling anybody out or anything,” Gastelum said. “Hopefully Joe Silva agrees with my idea. I’m not going to say who, but yeah, I’ve got somebody in mind.”

And so the undefeated Gastelum will return next year and look to keep his momentum rolling. Even though it’s a down time for the “TUF 18″ winner, he was motivated by the epic clash between Georges St-Pierre and Johny Hendricks at this past weekend’s UFC 167 event and looks forward to proving he belongs among the welterweight division’s elite.

“I will be back and better than ever,” Gastelum said. “I’m working to become the next welterweight champion. After what I saw on Saturday, I know what I need to do. I saw holes in other people’s games at the top of the list in my division, and I’m coming for all of them.”

it wouldnt surprise me if kelvin beat rory, he's got the wrestling, size and power in his hands to do it. but its too high risk, low reward and doesnt make sense if you look at rankings

No way in hell he's ready for Rory yet. 7-0 against mostly unknowns against the #4 ranked WW? Everyone loves the shit outta this guy cuz he posts here, but he's not top 5 yet

Ya he wants to fight a guy he's training with. He would get starched by rory. Dude loses one fight and all of a sudden people think kg can take him? Give him erick silva, that would be a good test for him, or Adlam amogav

Would be a huge step for Kelvin and I'd love to see it happen but i doubt Rory would accept it.
