Chris Kelades becomes first Canadian flyweight to join the UFC roster



Nova Scotia’s own, Chris Kelades will go to war inside the UFC Octagon on October 4, 2014 from the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The event titled UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine will be the first event that the UFC will host in Halifax and the third event in Canada in 2014, following The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale: Bisping vs. Kennedy and UFC 174.

Kelades (7-1) will step in on short notice to battle Patrick Holohan (10-0).  I guess when the UFC calls, you better accept!

The bout came official as Holohan’s scheduled opponent Louis Gaudinot had to withdraw from the fight due to pneumonia.

Chris Kelades expressed his excitement of being able to fight in the UFC and in front of his fans in Halifax.
