Video: Ex-champ Anderson Silva, Kelvin Gastelum face off for UFC Fight Night 122


Anderson Silva’s return to the octagon is two months away, and promotional efforts for his showdown with Kelvin Gastelum are already underway.

Silva (34-8 MMA, 17-4 UFC), who meets Gastelum at UFC Fight Night 122 on Nov. 25, faced off with Gastelum (13-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) today for the first time. The pair meet in the middleweight headliner of the UFC’s debut in mainland China, which goes down at Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, and streams on UFC Fight Pass.

The pair was scheduled to fight once before at UFC 212 in June, but weeks out from the event Gastelum failed a drug test for marijuana, resulting on a short suspension which prevented him from competing.

It appears closer to coming to fruition this time, though, and at least Silva didn’t have to face off with himself.
