Following through on plans to leave the Welterweight division "on a winning note", UFC fighter Paul Kelly has announced he will be dropping to Lightweight for his next fight. Kelly, 2-1 in UFC so far, also plans to sign a new deal with UFC before his next fight.

This should be a good move for Kelly.

Good call. Be interesting to see how he deals with all the wrestlers down there.

he says in the article that everyone in the gym struggle to keep him on his back, wonder if he includes rampage in that. im not convinced and agree he may struggle with all the pure wrestlers in the lw division

i think given his age and already impressive skill set for such a short career, that this guy could be a huge force at 155.....im not saying champ someday, but i see him having a joe stevenson type career.......good move

I don't think it's a given that Kelly will get a new deal with the UFC.

Especially since he's announced his move down to LW, where a strong wrestler lurks at pretty much every turn.
