Taking his second fight within a month, Brian Kelleher will return at UFC 250 to face Cody Stamann. First reported by Cole Shelton of BJPenn.com, the matchup will join the championship-headlined card that is set to take place on June 6th at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
In mid-May, Kelleher took his second fight of the year, stopping Hunter Azure in the second round. Earlier in the year, Kelleher snapped out of a losing streak by slipping a first-round guillotine choke on Ode Osbourne.
