Kelvin Gastelum is no longer fighting Anderson Silva at UFC 212 as planned, but the fighter’s hoping to face the legend one month later at UFC on FOX 22.
Silva and Gastelum were scheduled to fight on June 3rd. But the latter was flagged by USADA, for a potential anti-doping violation for marijuana, and was pulled from the event. Well, Silva still doesn’t have his next fight booked, and recently Gastelum tweeted out the comment below:

UFC on FOX 25 will take place on July 22nd at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Long Island. Could this fight happen? Maybe, although Silva recently said he wants to fight Yoel Romero for the interim 185 title, or he’s done fighting.
