UFC fighter Kevin Gastelum has been suspended for UFC 205. The New York State Athletic Commission informed Gastelum he will be suspended by six months for failing to appear at the official UFC 205 weigh-in.
The 25-year old American fighter was reportedly in the neighborhood of 10 pounds above the 171-point limit for his welterweight fight against Doanld “Cowboy” Cerrone. Fans who bought UFC tickets to see Gastelum fight will be very disappointed in the fighter. Gastelum is suspended just in New York, but it is common practice for other state commissions to honor the same suspension. Since this is New York’s first time hosting a UFC fight, it will be interesting to see if their suspension follows precedent.
