Several months ago, Kelvin Gastelum was a virtual unknown, but after an appearance on the Ultimate Fighter and two fights in the UFC cage, he looks like one of the top prospects in the welterweight division. In April, Gastelum became the winner of the 17th season of TUF with an upset split decision victory over Uriah Hall in the show’s finale. He then followed that performance with an even better one at UFC Fight Night 27, stunning Brian Melancon on the feet, then getting the submission victory shortly after in the opening round.

Season eleven winner of the Ultimate Fighter, Court McGee, improved his record to 2-0 in the welterweight division, following a closely-contested split decision win over Robert Whittaker at UFC Fight Night 27. McGee dropped to the 170-pound division after amassing a 3-2 record as middleweight, where he earned a unanimous decision victory over Josh Neer at UFC 157.
