UFC welterweight Kelvin Gastelum broke in his six-figure UFC contract in style Wednesday night. “The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner blasted out of the gates to score an easy submission victory over Brian Melancon.
Gastelum’s refined game, and physique, was on full display in Indiana. He scored a pair of brief takedowns, unleashed a couple of bombs and flaunted his Brazilian jiu jitsu skills to bump his professional record to an unblemished 7-0.
Gastelum is now perfect in his two big league bouts. Meanwhile, Uriah Hall, who Gastelum upset in the TUF finals and who was supposed to be the next coming after posting nonstop highlight reels on the reality show, has lost both of his fights in the Octagon and is hanging on by a thread.
UFC Fight Night took place inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
