Four-time Australian Olympic Judoka and UFC fighter Dan Kelly is returning to the octagon against Tom Breese at the recently announced UFC Liverpool event.
UFC officials announced UFC Fight Night 130 early Saturday morning via social media, taking place 28 May AEST at Liverpool’s Echo Arena and headlined by rising star Darren Till.

After suffering two straight loses in 2017, Kelly (13-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC) will be hoping to gain back some of his momentum that garnered him a four-fight win streak, including a victory over Rashad Evans, during his 2015-17 run.
His opponent Tom Breese (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC), will also be looking to get back in the win column and the octagon, coming off a 2016 split decision loss to Sean Strickland at UFC 199.
