That didn't take very long.

Just two weeks after a tight loss to Neil Magny, Kelvin Gastelum has accepted another bout, facing Kyle Noke at UFC 195 on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas, the UFC announced Monday.

Gastelum (11-2) fell to Magny via split decision at the Ultimate Fighter Latin America 2 Finale in Monterrey, Mexico last month and many thought the bout could have been a draw. Some even scored it for Gastelum, who has now lost two of three. Gastelum, 24, is the youngest The Ultimate Fighter winner ever and remains a budding prospect at welterweight, especially if his weight is truly in order.

Noke (22-7-1) is coming back quickly as well. He just knocked out Peter Sobotta in the first round at UFC 193 last month in Melbourne. Noke, 35, has won two in a row and three of his last four.

UFC 195 is headlined by a welterweight title fight between champion Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit. In the co-main event, heavyweight contenders Stipe Miocic and Andrei Arlovski will face off.
