Kelleher on the fight’s key moment

“First round, I start slow a lot of the time. I think he knew that, and he was coming out kind of powerful.”

Kelleher on having no fans in the arena

“It was still kind of cool because I heard (announcers) Jon Anik and (Paul) Felder like, ‘Whoa!’ I heard that crystal clear, so that was cool to hear. I felt like I handled it really well – no fans, just kind of kept focused, looked straight ahead, and just went with the flow of things.”

Kelleher on what he wants next

“I told (Dana White) I want my tie-dyed (Reebok) shorts. … And I told him to roll Sean O’Malley up in a joint so I can smoke his ass. It’s kind of obvious the UFC loves the guy. He’s got a lot of hype behind him and he’s one of those stars in the making-type people. For me, it’s a business move. It’s nothing personal. I want to steal that hype. I want to make myself a star in the sport.”
