Kelvin Gastelum has nothing against Uriah Hall. In fact, he's actually quite fond of his Team Sonnen teammate. But Gastelum admits he's getting sick and tired of listening to the hype.

From the internet hype alone you'd think Hall time traveled to 2003 and beat up Fedor, Nog, and Cro Cop simultaneously.

I just think its funny bc the last person Dana hyped from TUF was Nover. Lets hope Hall's UFC career lasts a bit longer.

Hey we all make mistakes. How was Dana to know that the phenom known only by his name, Efrain Escudero, would derail such an epic hype train?

Very true. Like Kelvin said, classic striker vs. grappler. Both are very good at their strengths.

I wonder if Dana thinks that there is such a thing as too much hype. I'd bet not. It's cool that he gets excited, but he seems a bit silly at times (like his reaction after Hall beat Andrews). I don't think your average consumer of UFC knows when someone is being overhyped, and that's probably good for business.

Dec 20, 2012 – UFC president Dana White is telling the media that there is one cast member on the ... dubbed season 8 TUF competitor Phillipe Nover "the Lightweight Anderson Silva.

this fight could turn out like the first silva/sonnen fight. uriah is the more dangerous striker, but what happens if he cant stop kelvin's TD's? im still gonna pick uriah to win that fight but i still think that a guy like kelvin could derail uriah's hype train

I'm sold on Uriah but I'm not sold on him being a complete fighter, he has looked mediocre on the ground at times and I feel that Kelvin has a definite advantage on the ground
