Gastelum, who was seconds from defeating Chris Weidman in the first round at UFC on FOX 25 in Long Island, will be giving up height and reach once again to “The Spider.” The two were originally supposed to meet at UFC 212, but Gastelum tested positive for marijuana metabolites resulting in a 90-day suspension.

Silva, 42, hasn’t fought since decisioning Derek Brunson at UFC 208 back in February.


UFC Shanghai is scheduled for Nov. 25 at the Mercedes Benz Arena.

Other bouts are expected to be announced.
