Good call. I was afraid he'd e unrealistic about his chances at this size given the momentum from the show etc. Will have a decent career at WW.

Does anyone else see Kelvin Gastelum developing into the Cain Valesquez of the WW division?

For me, Kelvins story so far resembles the HW champ in many ways. Kelvin already has great wrestling and cardio, i can only think that his boxing will get even better. For me, Kelvins relentless pace when he fights is similar to the start of Valesquez when he began his UFC career.

Great season of TUF, Congrats to Kelvin, no one saw him coming through in the finals including me.

Agree with everything you said. The only thing he won't have in common with Cain is being the champion. Unless it takes 5 years and GSPs age takes effect, I don't see him winning.
