Tim Kennedy-Kelvin Gastelum Not Official For UFC 206 Yet

There still appears to be a hold up involving the UFC 206 card, as the Ontatio Athletic Commission has yet to receive confirmation that will allow the Tim Kennedy-Kelvin Gastelum contest to take place.

Gastelum was suspended six months by the New York Athletic Commission after failing to weigh-in. The former Ultimate Fighter winner remains hopeful that his management team will get the suspension lifted so he can compete.

“The OAC honors all suspensions by members of the Association of Boxing Commissions,” Denelle Balfour, a spokesperson for the commission, wrote today in an email to MMAjunkie.

Gastelum has struggled with his weight, forcing the UFC to move him to middleweight once again. He is planning to try his hand at welterweight next year.
