The up-and coming ‘blessed’ one Max Holloway put on an impressive performance at UFC Broomfield Saturday night, so much so that on his post-fight interview with Jon Anik after his win over veteran Cole Milller he was immediately asked about stepping up in competition to face Cub Swanson on April 18th.
I spoke to UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby and they’ve been saving a slot for you; UFC on big FOX, April 18th in Newark, New Jersey, against Cub Swanson! How do you feel about that opportunity?
Holloway did not hesitate in his reply:
I feel blessed man! I’m going to get back in it, back in training camp. Cub, be ready! Let’s give the fans what they want, and that’s a fight. Let’s do this!
UFC on FOX 15 is headlined by Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold in a middleweight bout in Newark, New Jersery on April 18th.
