UFC Quick Quote: Country breakfast prompts Paul Kelly to drop ten pounds and one division

"I’m definitely dropping to 155-pounds now, it makes sense. I was eating a big breakfast on the morning of the weigh-in last Friday (for UFC 95). While everyone else is dying to make weight, I’m sitting there with a big bowl of muesli and a glass of orange juice. I’ll just have to cut 10-pounds and that’s it. It’s no big deal. All the lightweights in my gym are bigger than me in between fights. They walk around at about 83 kilos and I walk around at about 81 or 82 kilos. I won’t lose any strength moving down. Nobody can keep me on my back in the gym and that will stay like that at lightweight."

-UFC welterweight Paul Kelly, fresh off his thrilling three-round victory over Troy Mandaloniz at UFC 95 "Sanchez vs. Stevenson," tells UFC.com that his next fight will be in the lightweight division for the simple fact that it would only require a ten pound cut -- mere child's play by today's standards. "Tellys" is a welcome addition to lightweight -- or any other weight class in the UFC for that matter so long as he continues to put on performances like he did last Friday at the O2 Arena on London, England.
