The two worked together in his first fight out of the TUF house, but split due to financial issues. UFC President Dana White asked Gastelum to use Dolce for his UFC 180 co-main event slot, but Gastelum instead will be doing it on his own again:</p>
Dolce confirmed to ESPN.com on Monday he was contacted by Gastelum's camp, but is unavailable to travel to Mexico next week.
Gastelum said he failed to make weight last time mostly due to unforeseen circumstances and promised it would not be an issue this time.
"A lot of things went wrong that fight week," Gastelum told ESPN.com. "My weight was good. It was low. But things went south, starting with my flights getting canceled. One of my flights had to turn around and go back to my original airport. I didn't get into San Antonio until the next day at 2 a.m. A lot of little things went wrong, timing-wise. I had to check in pretty early for the UFC the day of the weigh-in and they didn't allow me to continue sweating off those pounds.
"We're going to make sure we do everything right this time. This should be the easiest weight cut I've had."
Kelvin Gastelum fights Jake Ellenberger at UFC 180 in Mexico City on November 15th in the co-main event.
