According to a report from the Liverpool Echo (HT: MMA Convert), former UFC fighter, Paul Kelly (12-5), along with several others, has been arrested and charged for drug offenses after a drug bust in Liverpool, England.

Cannabis, ammunition, and "drugs believed to be heroin" were reportedly found in the several locations that were raided during the sting. From the report:

THREE men were charged with drug offences last night after raids across Merseyside.

Police swooped on addresses in Liverpool and Sefton yesterday and arrested six men and a woman after seizing Class A drugs and firearms ammunition. The force’s Matrix unit supported by neighborhood officers executed the dawn raids and also confiscated large amounts of money.

Christopher McGirr, 27, of Carina Court, Aigburth, and Paul Kelly, 27, of Swanside Road, Knotty Ash, were charged with conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs. Paul Rogers, 27, of Smithford Walk, Roby, was charged with conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

All three men were held in custody and were due to appear at Liverpool magistrates court this morning.

Kelly has since responded, saying there was nothing illegal found on his Liverpool home:

Just to clarify yes my house was raided by mersyside matrix division who found no drugs or anything ov any criminal nature
