Thomas Almeida & Brian Kelleher Agree To Fight Through Twitter


It would seem that a bantamweight division fight may be added to the upcoming UFC On Fox 26 card if Brian Kelleher and Thomas Almeida have their way.

Kelleher, who last competed at UFC Fight Night Gdansk, used Twitter to challenge Almeida to a bout at UFC 219 on December 30.

Almeida is up for a fight against Kelleher, but he would like it to happen at UFC On Fox 26 on December 16.


In a response to the request from Almeida, the bantamweight prospect in Kelleher says UFC On Fox 26 is a go when the UFC calls.


While Kelleher last competed at UFC Fight Night Gdansk, the Brazilian bantamweight in Almeida last competed at UFC On Fox 25.

The UFC has yet to comment on or officially make the bout between Kelleher and Almeida.

UFC On Fox 26 takes place on Saturday, December 16 from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada with Robbie Lawler and Rafael Dos Anjos headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox.
