Kelvin Gastelum has received some good news and he feels a bout with Jack Hermansson before 2019 comes to a close is the way to go.
Gastelum Cleared For Full Training, Wants Hermansson Bout
Gastelum hadn’t been cleared for full contact since his bout with Adesanya. The number four-ranked middleweight took to his Twitter account to share the news that he has been cleared for full training and is eyeing a November return against Jack Hermansson:
“I’m a lil too excited! Lol, the Dr. just cleared me to fight and start training 100%. After the war I had with [Israel Adesanya] I had to make sure to take time off and make sure when I get cleared, I was physically, brand spankin new. 11 weeks later that day is here!! 11 weeks later that day has come and I’m ready to start looking for a return date! And my eyes are set for November. I want to thank you all for the continued support! Let’s continue this mission for gold! My time table for my return inside the octagon is November. No doubt about it. [Jack Hermansson] is the fight to make.”
Hermansson pulled off an upset victory over Jacare Souza. Hermansson earned a unanimous decision win in the UFC Sunrise back in April. He holds the fifth spot on the UFC middleweight rankings.
