Kelvin Gastelum Pushed For Bout With Carlos Condit

Kelvin Gastelum Pushed For Bout With Carlos Condit

Credit recent Ultimate Fighter winner Kelvin Gastelum with asking for the “top dog” upon returning from a minor knee injury.

According to a report on “UFC Tonight” earlier this week, Gastelum called up UFC matchmaker Joe Silva and asked to face former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit.

Silva declined that opportunity, though, as Tyron Woodley will face Condit at UFC 171 in Dallas.

Gastelum remains interested in returning on that March card and now is targeting Rick Story, the report added.

After injurying his PCL in training for a fight with Court McGee scheduled for this past weekend, Gastelum has his sights set on an early 2014 return to action.

Since claiming the title on TUF, he has defeated Brian Melancon via submission to remain unbeaten at 7-0.
