Recently speaking to MMA Fighting‘s Luke Thomas on The MMA Hour, Gastelum revealed that “The Reaper” has been offered to fight him twice now:

“I know that he’s been offered the fight against me twice and he has not been wanting to fight me,” Gastelum said. “And I think that’s for good reason. I think I give him the most difficult time if we step in the cage and I think he knows that. In my opinion, I match up horribly for him.”

The Champion, Robert “The Reaper” Whittaker looked impressive in a hard-fought decision win against the soldier of God Yoel Romero.

“I thought Romero would have been getting the nod, but obviously he didn’t,” Gastelum said. “And selfishly I thought, I was hoping they’d give it to Whittaker. Just because Romero had missed weight, he wouldn’t have been getting the belt and then it just would have created this whole scenario where I’m definitely not getting the next shot. It just wouldn’t be a position where I would be fighting for a title any time soon.”

Meanwhile, Whittaker’s team wants to fight All American Chris Weidman.
