On January 31, undefeated welterweight Kelvin Gastelum faces-off with #3 ranked Tyron Woodley in the UFC 183 co-main event.
UFC President Dana White says it’s a fight that could garner the TUF 17 winner a shot at the welterweight world title.
“No doubt about it,” said the UFC Boss. (Via LaAficion) “He could fight Lawler for the title this year if he beats Tyron Woodley.”
…This kid is great. Ever since he got to The Ultimate Fighter he looked like one of the least experienced fighters and keeps surprising us. He keeps getting better, and look where he is now. It’s amazing. We’re very excited about him.”
Does a win over Woodley trump MacDonald, Brown, and Hendricks for a shot at Lawler?
