With Cody McKenzie injured, Leonard Garcia gets a new opponent in Max Holloway. Garcia is known for his all-out offensive striking style as is Holloway which should make for a promising stand-up battle between a longtime veteran and a rising star in the featherweight division. Verbal agreements are in for that bout as well.
Holloway, looks to earn his third straight UFC win. The featherweight was overwhelmed in his UFC debut, a February submission loss to Dustin Poirier. However, he's since bounced back with a decision win over Pat Schilling and an impressive TKO finish of "The Ultimate Fighter 15" cast member Justin Lawrence. Holloway now fights for the fourth time in 2012.
