The Ultimate Fighter season 17 winner Kelvin Gastelum was supposed to fight Court McGee at UFC on FOX 9 earlier this month, but was forced to withdraw due to a torn PCL.

Now, in a report by MMA Underground user and NBC sports radio host Gator Choke, it appears that Gastelum will return to action opposite welterweight juggernaut Rick Story at UFC 171.

The bout will presumably be featured on the pay-per-view main card which is shaping up to be a great one with a welterweight championship showdown between Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler serving as the headliner.

This will be Gastelum's second appearance at 170 pounds, as he finished veteran Brian Melancon via first-round submission back in August in his divisional debut.

Stay tuned for any further details.
