Kelvin Gastelum Comments On Failing To Make Weight For UFN 44

0

As noted in our UFC Fight Night 44 Weigh-In Results earlier today we noted that Ultimate Fighter season 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum, who is scheduled to compete in the co-main event of the evening in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday night, missed weight for his fight with Nicholas Musoke.

Gastelum, who has had issues in the past with his weight, first weighed in at 173 lbs. for his 170 lb. fight. During his next attempt, the TUF 17 champion came up short once again, this time tipping the scales at 172.5 lbs.

As a result, Gastelum will be forced to forfeit 20-percent of his purse to Musoke. The fight, however, is still a go for Saturday night.

Gastelum posted the following comments on his official Twitter account, apologizing to his fans for failing to make weight:
