Gastelum upsets Hall, wins Ultimate Fighter 17

Saturday, April 13, 2013

From early days of their time in The Ultimate Fighter house, their roles were cast. Uriah Hall was the flashy, powerful favorite, capable of intimidating the opposition, while Kelvin Gastelum was the inexperienced underdog, the last pick on his team.

It was an unlikely pairing to end the season, but they both survived the tournament structure to meet in the TUF 17 Finale, where the roles finally got upended.

Showing no fear, Gastelum took the fight to Hall, withstood his barrages, and edged him in a split-decision by scores of 29-28, 29-28, 28-29.
