Kelvin Gastelum a Silent Assassin

Kelvin Gastelum is real. He exists. He’s a presence in this UFC.

"Perhaps the scariest part of Kelvin Gastelum’s quiet ruining of expectations is that he’s only 22 years old. The soft-spoken Arizona fighter that some fans have begun calling 'Mini Cain' was barely drinking age when he shut down the boogeyman of The Ultimate Fighter 17 house, Uriah Hall.

"People saw it more as Hall grossly underperforming than Gastelum 'shocking the world.' Since then he very quietly dropped to welterweight, where he’s gone 2-0. Brian Melancon, who looked so good in knocking out Seth Baczynski at UFC 162, couldn’t last half a round with Gastelum not quite two months later. Then Rick Story, who at one point was nudging his way into title contention, ended up on the wrong end of the scorecards against him at UFC 171."
