06:06 PM ET 12.20 | The Ultimate Fighter season 17 winner, Kelvin Gastelum, is set to make his return to the octagon after a 2-0 start in 2013. While most winners of TUF get a slow road to the top, the undefeated Gastelum will be getting a big step up in competition when he takes on Rick Story at UFC 171, which is scheduled to take place on March 15 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The UFC has yet to officially confirm the bout. Gastelum has previously said that he had hoped to make his return to the cage in Dallas and now he will get his wish. Story (16-7) is coming off of a big win over Brian Ebersole at UFC 167, while Gastelum (7-0) will face his stiffest test to date. It will be interesting to see if Gastelum is prepared to take the next step up in his career. A win could have him knocking on the door of the top 10.
