UFC middleweight – and recent welterweight – Kelvin Gastelum needs some good news in order to fight Tim Kennedy, and quickly.

The New York State Athletic Commission hasn’t given Gastelum a date for a hearing on his appeal of a six-month suspension. According to the Ontario Athletic Commission, his record has to be clear to fight at UFC 206.

“The OAC honors all suspensions by members of the Association of Boxing Commissions,” Denelle Balfour, a spokesperson for the commission, wrote today in an email to MMAjunkie.

“The Ultimate Fighter 17” winner expressed confidence that he will be cleared.

“What we’re trying to do is get the suspension lifted, and that’s what my team is working for right now,” Gastelum told MMAjunkie. “News should be coming soon this week.”

Lol two people commented so confidently it was only in NY he was suspended, were you guys so sure? Every commission honors every commissions suspensions. I still think he will fight since he can appeal in the meantime and be allowed to fight kinda like Rampage did against Maladanado for ufc 186
