Kelvin Gastelum is headed back to the middleweight division where he’ll face Nate Marquardt at UFC 188 in Mexico on June 13th.
Gastelum had been making his impression felt in the welterweight division since winning the TUF show back in 2013, notching up four wins in a row, but during that period he began having issues cutting weight.
Initially he failed to make the limit for...

Woodley was pummeled in a fourth-round TKO.
This time, on Super...
Brad Tavares stopped a two-fight losing skid in a rather slow and uneventful fight against former middleweight title contender Nate Marquardt.

Nate Marquardt came to fight in his first middleweight bout since early 2011. He came to fight from the opening bell right up until the finish. He dictated the pace and dished out the punishment.
