“Kelvin Gastelum Will Dominate Vitor Belfort”, Says Respected Brazilian Coach

Kelvin Gastelum will face Vitor Belfort in Fortaleza, Brazil on March 11. Gastelum is 14 years younger than Belfort, and although he is eight inches shorter and has a reach disadvantage of three inches, the Mexican-American plans to impose his will through his youth and strength.

“Vitor has this starting power that we know at the beginning of the fight, but he has to prepare, because it is not known until when he will be able to have that explosion. From the moment you do not have this restart, Vitor will be dominated. I’m not saying is going to be a mellow fight, but it’s going to be a very smart fight. We’re going to use Kelvin’s youth and strength in our favor,” says Gastelum’s head coach, Brazilian Rafael Cordeiro in a recent interview with Brazilian site Combate.

Kelvin is looking bigger than ever and according to coach Cordeiro, he is fully aware of the impact that fighting Vitor Belfort in Brazil can have in his career.
