Former welterweight and current Wolfslair product Paul Kelly (9-1) is looking for his second straight win at 155-pounds when he tangles with Germany's Dennis Siver (14-6) at the upcoming UFC 105 event expected for the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on November 14 according to Fighter's Only.
"Telly's" made the drop in weight following his thrilling three round war against Troy Mandaloniz back at UFC 93 in February of this year. He skipped his country breakfast and debuted at lightweight opposite Roli Delgado at UFC 99 on June 13.
Kelly was talking all sorts of stuff heading into the early summer bout however, "The Crazy Cuban" proved difficult to finish and took the Brit to the judge's scorecards.
No question Kelly will be looking to make a statement in his fight against Siver.
The heavy-handed kickboxer isn't going to make it easy. After a rocky 1-3 start inside the Octagon, Siver scored a much-needed win at Tempel: "Mix Fight Gala VII" in his native Germany. He came back to the UFC and racked up back-to-back wins, including an electrifying knockout over Nate Mohr at UFC 93.
Both fighters are coming in hungry and ready to keep their momentum going.
