UFC welterweight Kelvin Gastelum was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter Season 17, but the season was centered around middleweights. In his first fight after winning the show, Gastelum will be fighting at welterweight for the first time, but he isn’t worried cutting the extra 15 pounds. Gastelum has brought in Nutritionist Mike Dolce to help him with the cut, as told to RM Sports and originally posted on FightLine, so he wouldn’t have to worry about it.

Gastelum fights Brian Melancon this weekend at UFC Fight Night. UFC Fight Night: Shogun Vs Sonnen takes place in Boston on Saturday August 17 and the event will kick off the first card on FOX’s new channel Fox Sports 1. In the main event, Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua will take on Chael Sonnen in a five round bout. The last time the UFC was in Boston was for UFC 118: Edgar Vs Penn II at the TD Garden, and that is where this card will be as well.
