Our welterweight Nicholas Musoke, also called “Nico”, will square off against former TUF-winner Kelvin Gastelum in the co-main event for UFC Fight Night in San Antonio, Texas in June. This is a big fight between two prospects, and the winner gets closer to cracking into the top ten rankings.
Musoke got his UFC chance when he stepped in to fight Alessio Sakara on short notice last fall. A fight that earned the Swede a “Submission Of The Night” when he finished Sakara via armbar in the first round. Musoke also got a victory in his second fight against Viscardi Andrade in Brazil this February. The match against Gastelum will be “Nicos” third UFC appearance.
Gastelum last fight was against the very tough Rick Story in March, a fight he won by split decision. The 22 year old american is still undefeated with a record at 8-0.
The fight between Musoke and Gastelum takes place in San Antonio, Texas, June 28.
