Count Max Holloway Among Nick Diaz Defenders: ‘It’s a Bunch of BS’

Two weeks removed from his latest victory and Max Holloway already has his next fight mapped out for UFC 150 in Denver.

UFC officials on Monday announced that Holloway would square off with Justin Lawrence on Aug. 11 at the Pepsi Center.

Holloway (5-1) bounced back from the only loss of his professional career at the recent Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale (TUF Live) with unanimous decision victory over Pat Schilling.

The Hawaiian was unceremoniously thrown to the wolves on short notice in his first fight in the Octagon, stepping up to face one of the promotion’s top featherweight contenders. Dustin Poirier submitted Holloway late in the first round of their fight at UFC 143 on Super Bowl weekend.

Back on track, Holloway now steps in with undefeated TUF Live alum Justin Lawrence.

Lawrence currently maintains a 4-0 record with a win over John Cofer at the recent season finale in Las Vegas. He holds a notable victory over WEC veteran James Krause to earn his way into The Ultimate Fighter house, although that bout was a one-rounder and doesn’t count on the fighters’ official records.

UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson puts his belt on the line against the man he took it from, Frankie Edgar, in the main event at UFC 150 on Aug. 11 in Denver.
