Some fighters relish the underdog role, but after fighting his way into the finals of Saturday’s TUF 17 Finale, playing second fiddle to TUF 17 favorite Uriah Hall is wearing thin on Kelvin Gastelum.

“It’s kind of bittersweet,” Gatelum said at Thursday’s open workouts. “I’m comfortable taking the role, but I’ve proven people wrong over and over again. I’m kind of tired of the Uriah Hall hype train.

“I love proving people wrong.”

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled off the ‘upset’.

      That upset would be up there with Serra/GSP 1

        not really, Serra ko’d the champion right of the opening bell. You are the hype train majority Kelvin is talking about. TUF has truly mainstreamed this sport. It is built on hype and lulling fans into playing along.

          So him sending 3 guys to the hospital, only time it’s ever been done on TUF, is just hype? Guess it was fake just to make some good television and get good ratings …lol

            lolol my thoughts exactly.

        • MMA

          Definitely, I avoid fights that are built on useless hype like Gsp/Diaz and especially Sonnen/Jones, it is such a joke. But the hype with Hall is warranted, he looked awesome on the show and he’s going to be a great fighter.

    He has an excellent chance of winning and I sincerely hope he does.

    • Derek Lemaster

      I certainly hope he wins as well!
