The welterweight bout between ‘Cowboy’ Donald Cerrone and Kelvin Gastelum scheduled for UFC 205 is off due to Kelvin Gastelum unable to make weight.
Donald Cerrone weighed in at 170.4lbs but Gastelum, who has had problems making Welterweight in the past did not step onto the scale as he knew he would be unable to meet the weight requirements to allow the fight to happen.
Gastelum send out a message via his twitter,
I will not be fighting @Cowboycerrone 2morrow on account that I couldn’t make the wght limit. I apologize 2 cowboy ure a legend. God bless.

He also went on to say, “I’m sorry to My team, my friends and the ppl that genuinely care for me. Extremely dissapointed I will have to reevaluate things in my life”.
“No one is perfect. We all have bad days but I promise it will not happen again. I will comeback stronger like I have before. Until next time”.
This is the second fight to full through after Rashad Evans vs Tim Kennedy was cancelled.
