Scott Holtzman’s UFC debut went as planned on Saturday night as he dominated Anthony Christodoulou on the feet, eventually finishing the fight on the ground in the third round.
UFC Fight Night 73 took place on August 8, 2015 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. This bout was part of the preliminary portion of the card which aired on UFC Fight Pass.
Holtzman attacked the body with great effect during the fight and that seems to effect Christodoulou’s cardio as the fight went on. Holtman’s striking game looked as crisp as it ever has during his short career.
The UFC newcomer seized upon a takedown opportunity in the third and scrambled to back control, where he secured the choke that brought a tap at the 2:40 mark of the third round.
