The not so retired Paul Felder has stepped up for the UFC and will headline UFC Vegas 14 against RDA. Not only is he taking the fight on five days notice, but the Irish Dragon will fight RDA at 155lbs. According to Brett Okamoto, UFC officials confirmed the bout for this Saturday. RDA was originally suppose to face Islam Makhachev but Makhachev was forced to pull out of fight due to an infection.
Not many would step up to fight RDA on five days notice, but Paul Felder is a different breed. Technically Felder is retired, but to come out of “retirement” for a five round war deserves all the props. The Irish Dragon always puts on a show every time he steps into the octagon. In my opinion this match up is a better fight than RDA vs Makhachev. I really hope the UFC is going to take care of Felder for this one as he literally saved the UFC Vegas 14 card.
