A report by the Liverpool Echo earlier this week claimed Paul Kelly was involved in a drug raid that netted heroin, firearms ammunition and money. Kelly, a former UFC fighter, has taken to Twitter to set the record straight.
"Just to clarify yes my house was raided by mersyside matrix division who found no drugs or anything of any criminal nature," Kelly wrote Wednesday. Earlier in the day he posted, "no drugs no cash no sting!!!" and don't believe everything u read in the papers people !!!!!"
Kelly last fought inside the Octagon last year, falling to Donald Cerrone. He competed in India a month ago, falling to Ryan Healy at Super Fight League 2.
