Minutes after Paul Kelly defeated T.J. O’Brien on the undercard of UFC 123 he was called out on twitter. The one calling him out is none other than Gabe Ruediger (17-6), who said this via twitter “Just heard Paul Kelly won. Please Joe Silva, let me fight him next”.
Ruediger was originally scheduled to face Kelly tonight but a groin injury forced him off the card. It appears sitting at home watching the fights has given Ruediger some fighters envy, posting this on Twitter earlier, “Pretty disappointed about not fighting tonight. The day of the event is the worst”.
Ruediger was given a second chance in the UFC in August, when he faced Joe Lauzon at UFC 118. The fight was all Lauzon though and Ruediger was submitted by armbar just two minutes into the fight.
