A loss at UFC Liverpool would be a huge blow for the 40-year-old Kelly and he says that it would even make him consider retirement.

“If I lose another one, then I’m definitely done. I changed things a lot this preparation, I did a lot more than I normally do, and we did everything that we possibly can to try to create that (winning situation),” he said in an interview with MMA Junkie.

He went on to add that he does not want to be forced out of UFC with a string of losses and added that he wants to leave on his own terms.

“If I can fight the way I think I can and I know I can, I should win the fight, and then I can finish on my terms. I can finish my career on my terms. But you’ve got to be realistic. I am 40. I still feel good. I’m still training well. But at some point the story has to finish,” he added.

Made peace with it

Kelly suffered a unanimous decision loss against Elias Theodorou in his last fight and had lost to Derek Bruson prior to it. Even when the possibility of a loss against Breese lurks around the corner, Kelly says that he has made peace with the situation and a potential retirement.

“I’ve made peace with it all. I want to fight, I’m excited to fight. … In reality I want to finish at home. I want to have my kids involved because they’re a little bit older now,” he added.

Kelly is currently 13-3 in his career while Tom Breese comes into the fight with a professional record of 10-1 to his name.
