Patrick Holohan will lock horns with Louis Gaudinot when the UFC heads to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, on Oct. 4.
The Las Vegas-based promotion announced the matchup on Thursday. UFC Fight Night "MacDonald vs. Saffiedine" takes place at the Halifax Metro Centre and is headlined by a welterweight showdown between Rory MacDonald and Tarec Saffiedine.
Unbeaten in 11 professional outings, Holohan made his Octagon debut in impressive fashion, submitting Josh Sampo with a first-round rear-naked choke at UFC Fight Night Dublin on July 19. “The Hooligan finished eight of his 10 career triumphs by way of tapout.
Gaudinot, meanwhile, had his most recent victory changed to a no contest when he tested positive for a diuretic after choking out Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night “Gustafsson vs. Manuwa” on March 8. “The Ultimate Fighter 14” alum was also suspended for six months retroactive to the bout. Gaudinot’s lone official victory in four UFC fights came against John Lineker at UFC on Fox 3.
