Kelvin Gastelum Shocks the World, Defeats Uriah Hall at TUF 17 Finale

Kevin Gastelum shocked the world and defeated Uriah Hall by split decision using striking and takedowns.

Despite a close third round, Gastelum just seemed to control the fight more. He landed some good shots and used his wrestling to take Hall down consistently. Hall never got a chance to unleash his arsenal of strikes and besides a takedown of his own and some well placed jabs did not have much to offer Gastelum.

Official decision: Kelvin Gastelum def. Uriah Hall via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

Gastelum went into the show as the youngest TUF contestant to date. Hall was the favorite going into this fight demolishing all of his opponents inside the house. At just 21 years old, Gastelum used veteran like poise to pull the victory off.
