The fight that Paddy Holohan asked for following his win in Glasgow has been granted as the Irishman is set to take on Louis Smolka at UFC Fight Night 76.
UFC Fight Night 76 will be held on October 24, 2015 at 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
Holohan (12-1) has been impressive in his UFC run thus far, winning three out of four bouts. In his UFC debut he submitted Josh Sampo as the UFC Fight Night Dublin opener just over a year ago. His two other UFC wins have been unanimous decision wins over Shane Howell and Vaughan Lee. His one blemish and his only career defeat came at the hands of Chris Keledes at UFC Fight Night 54 in Halifax Nova Scotia via unanimous decision.
Smolka (9-1) has the same UFC record as the ‘Hooligan’. Two decision wins over Alptekin Özkılıç and Neil Seery and a ‘Performance of the Night’ TKO over Richie Vaculik have the streaking American looking toward the top 15 in the UFC’s flyweight division.
