Conor McGregor will not be going into battle alone at UFC Fight Night 59 this January, as his fellow countryman and teammate Patrick Holohan has been added to the nights roster.
A Flyweight prospect, Holohan was undefeated with 8 of ten wins via submission until recently being derailed by a game Chris Keladis in his last outing. Defeating 125 fireball Josh Sampo in his debut, Holohan has impressed fans since joining the Zuffa line-up. With the Flyweight division in short supply of title challengers who have not already challenged, Holohan will certainly be looking to kick off 2015 with a bang.
All in all, the UFC’s Boston card has continued to grow in appeal, and this latest addition is no exception. Check out the full card below, and for those of you gearing up for this weekends Fight Night, click here for a great break down of the main event!
