Anderson Silva Vs. Kelvin Gastelum Targeted For UFC Shanghai!

By Ben Cost

Just when you thought your UFC Shanghai blue balls couldn't get any bigger, Anderson Silva vs. Kelvin Gastelum is targeted for the main event! That's right, the two middleweights are slated to headline the UFC's flagship event in China on November 25th at the Hai's Mercedes Benz Arena.


The fight was supposed to go down at UFC 212, but had to be rescheduled after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana. Oh well, whatever makes it possible for us to see the Spider in Shanghai.


Silva, who was dubbed the 'greatest fighter of all time" by UFC president Dana White recently snapped a two-fight losing streak by earning a unanimous (albeit slightly controversial) decision victory over Derek Brunson at UFC 208 in Brooklyn, NY. Gastelum is coming off a submission loss to Chris Weidman in NY last month.


Tickets are on sale here.
