UFC Signs Aussie Kickboxer & Olympian Daniel Kelly

Despite a lacklustre performance on The Ultimate Fighter, Daniel Kelly’s dream has come true as he is finally in the UFC.

After losing his TUF Nations fight to Sheldon Westcott, Kelly has been signed by Zuffa and the Australian kickboxer will make his debut against Luke Zachrich on the upcoming Sydney Fight Night Card that will be headlined by Luke Rockhold vs. Michael Bisping.

Kelly is a 36-year old Judoka who was a four time member of Australia’s National Olympic Team and placed 7th in the 2004 Games. He also wrestled for his country at the 2002 Commonwealth Games and is an eight time national judo champ in Australia. He enters the UFC with a 7-0 unbeaten record.
