Kelleher Looking To Climb Ranks With Win Over Stamann

A bantamweight bout between Brian Kelleher and Cody Stamann is the latest addition to the upcoming UFC 250 pay-per-view event on June 6.

The matchup was confirmed to MMA Junkie following an initial report from BJPenn.com. An official announcement should be expected soon.

Kelleher is coming off an impressive knockout win over Hunter Azure at UFC Jacksonville earlier this month and will have a short layoff as he looks to build further momentum. He is currently on a two-fight winning streak and has also won four of his last six outings overall with the UFC.

The event will be headlined by a women’s featherweight title fight between Amanda Nunes and Felicia Spencer.
