Paul Kelly, who fought under the UFC banner last year with his last bout coming against Donald Cerrone, was arrested in his native country of England in a drug raid. Kelly and several other men were found to have cannabis plants, drugs believed to be heroin, firearms ammunition and stacks of money money at many locations around different cities in an organized raid.
The 27-year-old won five fights in the UFC and has a career record of 12-5. Kelly, who lost to Cerrone via submission, was defeated by Ryan Healy earlier this year in India at Super Fight League 2.
The Liverpool Echo first reported Kelly’s arrest on Monday in a report.
Kelly has now taken to his own Twitter account to update the story, saying, “Just to clarify yes my house was raided by Mersyside Matrix Division who found no drugs or anything of any criminal nature…no drugs no cash no sting!!!”
