Skelly defeated Jordan Griffin via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC on ESPN+ 16 on Saturday in Vancouver.
ANALYSIS
Skelly's counting stats unfortunately won't move the needle much for fantasy owners, but he nonetheless cashed in as a (+145) betting underdog. It was exactly what he needed to do to get a win against the more athletic prospect, and he executed this grappling-based game plan to perfection. When it was all said and done, Skelly recorded 21 significant strikes, three advances, one takedown and one reversal. The victory snapped a two-fight losing streak and improves Skelly's record to 18-4 as a professional.

Skelly will face off against Jordan Griffin in a featherweight matchup at UFC Minneapolis on June 29, The Star Tribune reports.
ANALYSIS
Skelly will get back into the cage for this featherweight bout after losing his last two fights to Bobby Moffett and Jason Knight. Griffin is coming off a loss by decision in his UFC debut against against Dan Ige last December. Griffin was taken down three times in the loss in front of his hometown crowd, which could play into one of Skelly's strengths. Skelly has averaged 1.83 takedowns per 15 minutes in his 10-fight UFC career, recording at least one in each of his last three fights.
Suffers controversial loss Saturday in Denver

November 10, 2018
Skelly lost to Bobby Moffett via technical submission (D'arce choke) at 2:43 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Denver.
ANALYSIS
What a mess. With Skelly doing all he could to fight off the submission attempt of Moffett, referee Tim Mills decided he was out cold. If he was indeed done, Skelly was alert and complaining to Mills a nanosecond later. Colorado has adopted the new unified rules of MMA and Mills spent a good five minutes reviewing the call before sticking with his original decision. It's a disappointing result for Skelly in a fight in which he was winning. It was his first appearance in 17 months due to Tommy John surgery.
