Selden’s Brian “Boom” Kelleher is set to face Poland’s Damian Stasiak at UFC Fight Night 118. The men’s bantamweight bout will take place at the Ergo Arena in Gdansk, Poland on Oct 21.
Kelleher (17-8 MMA, 2-1 UFC) made his UFC debut just over two months ago at UFC 212 in June. After securing an impressive first round submission win over Iuri Alcantara, he immediately asked to be place on his hometown card the following month. His wish was granted. The 30-year-old faced Marlon Vera at UFC Long Island in July, where he got his first loss in three years.
With a quick turn around, the former Ring of Combat champion is now looking to securing a fight bonus against Stasiak.
Stasiak (10-4) is coming off his first loss since his debut with the promotion in 2015. The 27-year-old came up short on a judges decision to Pedro Munhoz at UFC Fight Night: Gustafsson vs. Teixeira in May.
