Costa Out, Gastelum In For August 21 Main Event Against Cannonier


Kelvin Gastelum is as soon as once more filling in for Paulo Costa and will probably be dealing with Jared Cannonier on August 21.

In line with an ESPN report late Friday, Paulo Costa has withdrawn from his combat in opposition to Jared Cannonier slated for Aug. 21, and his unidentical stunt double, Kelvin Gastelum, will step in for him as soon as once more. There is no such thing as a phrase but on what prompted Costa’s withdrawal.

Costa lately pulled out of a combat in opposition to Robert Whittaker earlier this yr, and Gastelum stepped up to offer followers the UFC 234 major occasion that by no means was. The #9-ranked Gastelum will as soon as once more seize a grand alternative right here in opposition to a top-5 opponent in Jared Cannonier.

It wasn’t way back that #4-ranked middleweight Jared Cannonier was one combat away from difficult Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title. Sadly for the “Killa Gorilla,” the aforementioned Robert Whittaker stood in his method. Each Cannonier and Gastelum will look to rebound from their date with The Reaper on this summer time showdown.

With this major occasion, the present lineup for the August 21 Battle Night time card is as follows.

Jared Cannonier vs. Kelvin Gastelum

Alexandre Pantoja vs. Brandon Royval

Clay Guida vs. Mark Madsen

Brian Kelleher vs. Domingo Pilarte

Jesse Strader vs. Mana Martinez

Fabio Cherant vs. William Knight

Austin Hubbard vs. Vinc Pichel

Austin Lingo vs. Luis Saldana

Chase Sherman vs. Parker Porter

Bea Malecki vs. Josiane Nunes

Brian Kelleher vs. Domingo Pilarte

Ramiz Brahimaj vs. Sasha Palatnikov

Who’s your decide to win the brand new August 28 major occasion?
