An intriguing welterweight bout has apparently been added to UFC 171 on March 15th.

It appears that the UFC has added yet another welterweight fight to the UFC 171 card on March 15th in Dallas. The current top three bouts on the card are all at
170-pounds, and this most recent addition is pretty good as well. The news comes via NBC Sports Radio host Gator Choke. The UFC has not officially announced the bout as of yet.

Damn, this kid is only 22 and he's already fighting Rick Story. Big step up in competition here. It might be too early for him but if he can get a win here, the sky is the limit for the rest of his career.

Intriguing is the best way to describe this match up. I really like this fight and look forward to it as it's a big fight to see if Gastelum is as great against tougher opposition or if Story can continue to ride the wave of momentum he's currently riding.

Hmm Gastelum is certainly a bright prospect and I think he's got a good style to deal with Story.
The experience factor is huge and we'll see how Kelvin can handle it.
He definitely seems like a guy who can perform under pressure so this is going to be a great fight no doubt

Dam. One more welterweight fight and you could
Do a all welterweight main card.

To be fair he asked for Stroy or Condit.


Rick Story is too well rounded for Kelvin as this point.

Story will be a heavy favorite when the odds come out on this one. Probably 3-1

I'm tipping him too, but it's going to be a war.
