Paul Kelly LW debut @ UFC 99

One fight that i'm actually pretty interested in at 'Der Comeback,' in Germany is the LW tilt between Paul Kelly and Rolando Delgado.  Kelly is an overbearing top- control oriented fighter, with powerful wrestling, decent cardio, and a few solid wins at WW.  Always a tad undersized at 170, he'll be making the drop to '55 against TUF alumn Roly Delgado.

Personally, I see Kelly gaining top control, and pounding Delgado out for a (T)KO, somewhere in the 2'nd/ 3'rd round.  Paul just has absolutely suffocating top control and ground and pound skills, and if he makes the cut well, I think he'll be a physical beast at 170.

Delgado does have some solid Jits, though, and Kelly did get subbed by a Marcus Davis guillotine not too long ago.  However, I think he'll be able to power out of any of the submission attempts that the rather frail Delgado should throw his way.

(Delgado, coincidentally, has never heard of protein shakes).


I'm expecting Kelly to make a statement at 99.
