It has been two months since the fight and it also took two months for the fighter to be medically cleared from the damage suffered at UFC 236.
Gastelum is now planning a return to action and the fighter would like to make that return in November, which he announced via Instagram:
I’m a little too excited! The doctor just gave me good news and cleared me to fight and start training -- After the war I had with Stylebender I had to make sure to take time off and make sure that when I get cleared, I was physically, brand spankin new. 11 weeks later that day has come and I’m ready to start looking for a return date! And my eyes are set for November. I want to thank you all for the continued support! Let’s continue this mission for gold! #OnAmission4Gold #KingsMMA #10thplanetJJ
The fighter also has an opponent in mind for that return bout and that person is Jack Hermansson, which Gastelum revealed through Twitter:
Hermansson last competed in the main event of UFC Fight Night Fort Lauderdale, defeating Ronaldo Souza by decision.
