UFC Fight Night 122’s Kelvin Gastelum: ‘Robert Whittaker and I should fight for undisputed belt’
UFC middleweight Kelvin Gastelum confidently declared he isn’t waiting for new champ Georges St-Pierre, according to MMAJunkie.
“I’m here to focus on my career and get where I need to be, which is the middleweight title,” Gastelumsaid after knocking out recently disposed titleholder Michael Bisping in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 122, which took place Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.
“‘GSP’ said it himself – anything can happen in the sport of MMA,” said Gastelum. “I feel like Robert Whittaker and I should be next. We’re two young guys; we haven’t even hit our prime yet. I just beat the guy who was the guys, so I feel I should be next.”
“You guys say I beat up all the elderly, and Robert Whittaker is definitely not elderly – I think he’s probably my age,” Gastelum said. “So I’m up for the challenge.”
“I trained for this, and I expected it coming into the fight that I would knock (Bisping) out,” he said. “I am confident in my abilities.”
