A new welterweight bout has been added to UFC On FOX 9. Kelvin Gastelum is taking on Court McGee at the event scheduled for mid December. The two Ultimate fighter winners are both riding win streaks. Gastelum won his debut in the UFC when he defeated show favorit Uriah Hall and then went on to get his first win at welterweight and defeated Brian Melancon by submission in the first round. McGee will be making his third appearance as a welterweight. He has strung together two decision wins over Robert Whittaker and Josh Neer.
UFC On FOX 9 is scheduled for December 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, California. In the main event, UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis will be putting the title on the line against Josh Thomson in a five round bout. In the co-main event, WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber will take on Michael ‘Mayday’ McDonald.
