According to a report from MMA Fighting.com, the UFC is trying to book a bout between the two for the July 9th event. The UFC has yet to make any official announcement.
Hendricks (17-4) is coming off a first round, stoppage loss to Stephen Thompson in February, which dropped him to #5 in the 170 ranks.
Gastelum (11-2), meanwhile, is coming off a split decision loss to Neil Magny in November and is ranked #12.
So, that would be an interesting match-up, no question. It’s a pivotal fight for both guys, considering each man has lost two of their last three fights.
UFC 200 will be hosted by the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
