Las Vegas, Nevada

—————————————————————–

Leonard Garcia is in desperate need of a victory, losing three consecutive fights inside the UFC. Garcia’s last win was a controversial split decision victory against Nam Phan in December of 2010. He has since lost consecutive fights to Chan Sung Jung, Nam Phan, and most recently a unanimous decision defeat to Matt Grice at UFC on FX 3.

Max Holloway won his second consecutive fight in the UFC after a second round TKO victory over fellow prospect, Justin Lawrence at UFC 150. Holloway made his UFC debut in February of this year, but came up short after being submitted by Dustin Poirier with a impressive triangle/armbar combo. He followed that loss with a unanimous decision win over Pat Schilling at The Ultimate Fighter 15 finale.
