Kelvin Gastelum believes that Santiago Ponzinibio will “sleep” Mike Perry when the welterweight contenders square off at UFC on FOX 26 in Winnipeg on December 16.

The former Ultimate Fighter winner, Gastelum, took to Twitter earlier today where he voiced his opinion on the Ponzinibio vs. Perry matchup.

“Everyone is sleeping on Ponzinibio! He’d sleep both of em but no one is talking about it.” – Kelvin Gastelum

Gastelum not only believes that Ponzinibio will sleep Mike Perry in Winnipeg, but also predicted that Santiago would do the same to undefeated welterweight contender Darren Till in a future matchup.

Mike Perry obviously did not take well to Gastelum’s tweet and quickly responded to Kelvin with the following.

“So @KelvinGastelum stands up for @SPonzinibbioMMA because media is unfair and I was in the right place at the right time #Hater” – Mike Perry

Kelvin would reply to Perry insisting that he was not “hating” and added that he had no reason to do so.

Mike Perry (11-1 MMA) made headlines at yesterday’s UFC Fight Night 118 event in Gdansk, Poland, this after he stormed the cage following a callout from main event winner Darren Till.

Perry has gone 4-1 in the UFC with his lone loss coming to Alan Jouban via decision last December.

“Platinum” has won all eleven of his professional fights by way of knockout.

Perry’s December opponent, Santiago Ponzinibio, is coming off an impressive first-round stoppage victory over perennial division contender Gunnar Nelson.
