MMA Fail: Kelvin Gastelum Can’t Wakeboard … Like, At All

UFC middleweight Kelvin Gastelum may be a world class mixed martial artist. But the fighter is doubtfully going to be landing a career in water sports anytime soon.

Gastelum is riding a stunning victory over former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping at the moment. The fighter earned a dazzling first round knockout finish over “The Count” back at UFC Fight Night 122.

Now Gastelum is gearing up to face off against Ronaldo Souza at UFC 224. The two mixed martial arts warriors will throw down May 12 in Rio De Janeiro Brazil. The event will be featured live on pay-per-view.

That being said, it would appear that Gastelum recently decided to take a break from his training to try his best at wakeboarding. The water sport requires the participant to strap their feet into a large board.

The participant is then pulled by either a boat or a machine from a handle held by the wakeboarder. While Gastelum hit the water with gusto, the fighter was simply unable to keep his balance for long.
