Kelvin Gastelum has looked great since defeating Uriah Hall to with the Ultimate Fighter Season 17. Since then, he has defeating Brian Melancon by submission and Rick Story via split decision.

This fight seems to be a step back for Gastelum, but if he wins here he will have won four straight inside the Octagon. Couple that with the fact that he is undefeated in 8 pro fights, and Gastelum may get a contender his next time out.
