Two lightweight fighters may be battling for their UFC careers, as Gabe Ruediger faces Paul Kelly this November at the UFC 123 in Detroit. Can Ruediger come back stronger this time? Or will Kelly get another win?

Gabe Ruediger will get another crack in the Octagon as he faces Paul Kelly this November at UFC 123 in Detroit. After four years of hiatus, Ruediger faced Joe Lauzon at UFC 118 in Boston in just a short notice. However, it didn’t go so well for him as he found himself submitting at just over two minutes into the first round. After Joe Silva promised him another shot, he vowed to come back stronger and will get a full training camp to prepare for his November showdown. On Paul Kelly’s part, he has picked up some big wins along the way and eventually dropped from welterweight to lightweight. Though he went 2-2 over his last four fights, Kelly is intent to keep his UFC career alive when he faces his opponent in UFC 123 undercard.

More UFC 123 fights will be announced soon, so don’t forget to check back again.
