Kelvin Gastelum vs. Nassourdine Imavov Booked To Headline UFC's First Event In 2023

Former UFC title challenger Kelvin Gastelum and surging contender Nassourdine Imavov are set to headline the promotion's first card of 2023 on January 14 at a yet-to-be-announced UFC Fight Night event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The French combat sports podcast, La Sueur, was the first to report the news of the matchup via a tweet, although the promotion itself has yet to confirm anything regarding the booking. Gastelum is 1-5 in his last six Octagon appearances and will try to rebound from a unanimous decision loss to fellow former UFC title challenger, Jared Cannonier, back at UFC Vegas 34. Imavov on the other hand is 5-1 in his last six fights and is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Joaquin Buckley back at UFC Paris.
