Kelvin Gastelum riding high… Now riding low after a three fight losing streak. Sucks to see for Kelvin because he’s such a talented fighter with all the potential to become a UFC Middleweight or UFC Welterweight Champion which to me is the better option.
Gastelum Down to Welterweight
Kelvin Gastelum needs a change, Not change gyms but a drop down in weight. Fighting in the Middleweight division is too hard for him. Fighting against Till, Adesanya, Romero. Drop down to welterweight he’ll fit perfect there.
Be faster, Little bit stronger than some of the welterweights. His punches will be more effective. Kelvin fighting at 185 pounds at five foot nine is too small.
Kelvin Gastelum moving down to welterweight we can see challenge for a UFC Welterweight Title. Imagine the fights against Tyron Woodley, Colby Covington, Leon Edwards, Kamaru Usman. Return to welterweight in his next fight.
Watch the Kelvin Gastelum of old who defeated Jacare Souza and knocked out Michael Bisping.
However to drop down to welterweight NEEDS to have a strict diet, Lay off the junk food most of the time. Love to see Kelvin build some muscle, Lose some baby fat. Be in the best shape of his life entering his athletic prime.
Kelvin Gastelum can stand and bang with Israel Adesanya for five rounds than he CAN fight the best welterweights in the world.
“I know people at home are going through worse things than I ever was, going through their own personal battles. Here I am on the other side. I worked through my own personal demons. I’m OK.”
Battling some personal demons after the Till loss and I’m sure is dealing with problems again but I hope he stays strong mentally because he’s that talented. Please move down a weight class and fight in the welterweight division.
