UFC Welterweight Rick Story

On Friday night, a welterweight scrap between Rick Story (pictured) and Kelvin Gastelum was added to the UFC 171 lineup.

The March 15 event takes place inside American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Story has alternated between wins and losses over his past six fights. “Horror” most recently posted a unanimous decision victory over Brian Ebersole in November.

Gastelum, meanwhile, owns an unblemished 7-0 professional record, with his last two tangos coming inside the Octagon. After upsetting Uriah Hall to win “The Ultimate Fighter 17,” Gastelum dropped to welterweight and submitted Brian Melancon in August.

Darrell Montague vs. William Campuzano

Sean Spencer vs. Alex Garcia

Bubba McDaniel vs. Tor Troeng

Myles Jury vs. Diego Sanchez

Thiago Silva vs. Ovince St. Preux

Kelvin Gastelum vs. Rick Story
