Troy Mandaloniz, a cast member on the sixth season of “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, will return to the UFC after a one-year hiatus to take on England native Paul Kelly in his home country at UFC 95, which will take place on February 21 in London.
According to MMA Weekly, Mandaloniz is expected to sign his bout agreement to face Kelly at some point today and Kelly will likely sign his paperwork in the coming days as well. Mandaloniz will be moving up to 170 lbs. from the lightweight division for the fight, which will probably take place as a dark match on UFC 95’s undercard.
