Kelvin Gastelum is all set to fight former welterweight title challenger from the United Kingdom, Darren Till on November 2 at UFC 244 which is scheduled to take place at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.
Although UFC matchmakers and Dana White were under fire from fans for making this fight considering, Till is coming off of two back to back losses against Jorge Masvidal and Tyron Woodley.
However, that doesn’t concern Gastelum as he plans to get his name back in the win column. He has predicted a first-round knockout.
“I got to go out here and make a statement,” he said in a recent interview. “Put a stamp on Darren Till. Unfortunately, he’s the one that’s in my way and I got to put him out in devastating fashion so I can make the world remember who I am.”
“I’m predicting a first-round knockout,” he added. “I feel very confident in my skills and preparation. After having gone through a war, you only level up and I feel like I have levelled up and man, it’s going to be very hard to beat me.” [H/T – LowKick MMA]
