Gastelum vs. USADA May End Soon


Rising UFC Middleweight star Kelvin Gastelum recently saw his sprint to the top come to a screeching halt when USADA flagged him for having Marijuana traces in his system. Gastelum was scheduled to face Anderson Silva in Brazil at UFC 212 when USADA laid the smack down, citing their anti-marijuana legislation.

According to his management however, the situation may be resolved sooner than anyone expected.
