With his victory over Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 60 on Saturday night in Broomfield, Colo., Max Holloway couldn’t leave the area before he already had his next fight booked. In all actuality, plans were already in place for Holloway’s next bout even before he ever set foot in the Octagon with Miller.
Holloway will next step into the cage opposite Cub Swanson in the UFC on FOX 15 co-main event in support of the Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold headliner.
“It’s signed and done,” Holloway said on Saturday night at the post-fight press conference. “When UFC gives you a fight, you say yes. And even if in your mind you’re thinking no, you say yes because if you say no you’re going to be away for a long time. It’s an opportunity.”
UFC on FOX 15 takes place on April 18 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J Holloway couldn’t be happier than to test his skills against the No. 5 ranked fighter in the UFC featherweight division.
“Cub’s a top-five fighter and he’s a striker, I’m a striker,” said Holloway. “Tt should be a fun one to watch. You’ll see a bunch of cool spinning stuff.”
