UFC welterweights Matt Brown and Kelvin Gastelum are set to square off at the UFC’s next trip to Mexico, on Nov. 21. The two will headline the event, which will serve as the TUF Latin America 2 Finale.

It will be Gastelum’s return to welterweight after a short stint at middleweight. A stint that was forced on him by UFC president Dana White. Gastelum had issues making weight several times and was eventually kicked out of the division and forced to move up.

He did, and beat Nate Marquardt. The UFC gave him the green light to try out 170 lbs. again, against Brown. Well, Gastelum revealed recently that the UFC is actually paying for a nutritionist to help him make the weight, something that didn’t sit very well with Brown.

The two went back and forth about the subject on Twitter:


What do you guys think, is it fair that the UFC is helping Gastleum make the weight?
