Paul Kelly at UFC 105Former UFC fighter Paul Kelly was arrested on Monday for allegedly conspiring to supply Class A and B drugs, according to a report from the Liverpool Echo.

Kelly was one of several individuals arrested in a drug-related sting that included the execution of 14 search warrants. Police found cannabis plants, what was believed to be heroin, firearms ammunition, and confiscated large amounts of money in the raids, which included several locations and other individuals besides Kelly.

Detective Inspector Mark Kameen, who is the lead on the investigation, stated, “This operation was part of our ongoing crackdown on criminals involved in the illegal drugs trade.

“These arrests demonstrate the importance of the community supplying us with information so we can take action.”

UPDATE: Kelly on Wednesday took to Twitter to comment on the situation, writing, “No drugs no cash no sting !!!”

He added, “Just to clarify yes my house was raided by mersyside matrix division who found no drugs or anything ov any criminal nature.”

Kelly did not address the accusation by the Liverpool Echo that he had been arrested and charged.

Kelly left the UFC following a loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC 126 last year. He has had only one fight since, losing a unanimous decision to Ryan Healy at Super Fight League 2 in India last month.

Now he’ll be fighting an entirely different type of fight.
