White “Gastelum Will Never Fight at 170 Again”


A profoundly frustrated looking White was asked how frustrated he was.

“I’ll never let him fight at 170 again,” said White on a clip from FOX Sports’ The Buzzer.

White was then asked about Gastelum’s weigh in at UFC 183 on January 31, 2015, when he made 180, for a fight he was contracted to make 171 (welterweight limit plus the non-title courtesy pound).

“I think he missed this one by ten pounds,” said White.

With Gastelum out, UFC 205, which takes place at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, November 12, has a five-fight main card.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
