It was another good night for Kelvin Gastelum in his new home of 185-pounds as he picked up his second successive middleweight victory at UFC Fortaleza on Saturday night.
Gastelum needed less than four minutes of the first round to finish former light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort, in what is the Brazilian third successive loss in the UFC and, in all likelihood, expedite the 39-year-old’s transition to retirement. Or the Legends League that he seems intent on starting.
Elsewhere on the card, Shogun Rua is back on solid ground at 205-pounds after a third round knockout of Team Serra-Longo product Gian Villante while Edson Barboza has another clip for his ever-expanding highlight reel as he knockout Beneil Dariush with a stunning flying knee.
