UFC Fight Night 60: Max Holloway Wins, Finds Out His Next Foe

ufc fight night 60

Max Holloway found out his next opponent just moments after earning his fifth straight Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 60.

Holloway claimed a decision over Cole Miller and was told he would face Cub Swanson in April at UFC on FOX: Machida vs. Rockhold.

“Blessed,” he said, when asked about the fight. “Let’s get back in it. Cub, be ready.

“Let’s give the fans what they want, which is a fight.”

Since a loss to Conor McGregor, Holloway (12-3) has claimed victories in each of his last five. He had trouble with Miller’s (21-9) range early, but found his own rhythm after an accidental headbutt started giving Miller fits.

“I had to go and make a statement,” Holloway said. “I had to dig deep and I had to get the win.”

Swanson had a simple message in reply to the fight on Twitter, saying “I’m down.”

Below is the current lineup for the card:

Middleweight: Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold

Middleweight: Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza vs. Yoel Romero

Female Strawweight: Paige VanZant vs. Felice Herrig

Bantamweight: Aljamain Sterling vs. Takeya Mizugaki

Lightweight: Jim Miller vs. Paul Felder

Light Heavyweight: Corey Anderson vs. Gian Villante
