Just when you thought this card was stacked. “BOOM”. It is MORE stacked. 

Less than a week since his dominate debut at UFC 212, Selden’s Brian “Boom” Kelleher has his next fight. Kelleher is set to face Marlon Vera at UFC on FOX 25 on July 22. 

Newsday.com was first to announce the bout. This will be the UFC’s first visit to Long Island. The card will to take place at the newly renovated Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale.

Kelleher (17-7 MMA, 1-0 UFC) earned $50k in his debut bout after submitting Iuri Alcantara in the very first round. In his memorable post fight speech, he asked for a fight closer to home and for a fight bonus. After both requests got granted, he also moved up to the #10 ranked bantamweight in the UFC.
