UFC 205: Donald Cerrone vs. Kelvin Gastelum cancelled

By Oscar Willis - 11 Nov 2016

The Kelvin Gastelum vs. Donald Cerrone for tomorrow night has been scrapped.

Gastelum, a late replacement for Robbie Lawler, has failed to make weight — the third time in his career he has failed to do so.

The (supposed) welterweight confirmed the news on his social media, and didn’t take to the scales.

At this stage, it’s unlikely someone could step in on such short notice, meaning Cerrone won’t be fighting tomorrow night — a fact he was visibly angered by at the weigh ins.

While the UFC had Jacare Souza on retainer to be available should a fighter be pulled from the card, him being 185-pounds to Cerrone’s 170 means the NYAC commission wouldn’t sanction the bout.
