A lightweight matchup is set for the UFC’s April slate of events.
Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that Scott Holtzman and Mateusz Gamrot will fight at the UFC’s event on April 10, which currently does not have a venue or location officially announced. Twitter user Kuba Voranek first reported the booking.
Holtzman will look to bounce back from a first-round spinning back fist KO in his most recent appearance against Beneil Dariush at UFC Vegas 6 in August. Prior to that, “Hot Sauce” had won five of six, including victories over Jim Miller and Dong Hyun Ma. The 37-year-old is set to make the walk to the octagon for the 12th time.
Gamrot, a former two-division champion for KSW, eyes his first promotional win. In his long awaited octagon debut, “Gamer” dropped a split decision to fellow promotional newcomer Guram Kutateladze at UFC Fight Island 6 in October, snapping a 17-fight fight winning streak.
The UFC’s April 10 event will be headlined by a pivotal middleweight bout between Darren Till and Marvin Vettori.
