Now that UFC Fight Night 113 is in the books — full results here — Ultimate Fighting Championship is all set to stage it’s next event, as UFC on FOX 25 is set to go down next Saturday (July 22, 2017) inside NYCB LIVE in Uniondale, New York.
The event will feature a Middleweight scrap between former division champion Chris Weidman and former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) winner, Kelvin Gastelum. “All American” is in desperate need of a win after losing three in a row to the likes of Yoel Romero, Gegard Mousasi and Luke Rockhold.
And New York has not been good to him, as he has dropped his last two in his home state.
And it won’t get easier, as Kelvin has proven time and again to be a tough out. In fact, Gastelum’s last three victories have come against Tim Kennedy, johny Hendricks and Vitor Belfort. A win over Weidman could get Kelvin his much-desired shot at the strap now that the promotion has one less contender in Gegard.
Also on the card, Dennis Bermudez returns to face Darren Elkins, while Patrick Cummins faces Gian Villante in main card action.
