Chris Curtis and Kelvin Gastelum will hit the octagon on Saturday, April 8 from the Kaseya Center in Miami, Florida. The middleweight fight will be a part of the preliminary round, leading up to the main card that’s headlined by Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya.
Curtis will bring a 30-9 record into Saturday night and had an eight-fight winning streak before a loss to Jack Hermansson, though he rebounded with a Round 2 victory over Joaquin Buckley at UFC 282 in December. Gastelum is 17-8 but lost five of his last six fights including two in a row heading into this fight. He hasn’t fought since August 2021 when he lost to Jared Cannonier via unanimous decision.
