Just a year into his MMA career and Scott Holtzman is already closing in on the Xtreme Fighting Championship (XFC) lightweight title. Even with a title eliminator fight tomorrow, Holtzman isn’t making too much noise.
“At the end of the day, it’s still a fight,” said Holtzman to MMA Weekly. “The cage is the same size, he puts on his gear the same way I do, and whether the fight was on the undercard, the main event or a title fight, it’s still just a fight at the end of the day. I don’t make it any bigger than it really is.”
Holtzman takes on another undefeated fighter in Jason Hicks. Last year, Hicks took a pair of wins and Holtzman had three stoppages out of the XFC.
The current lightweight champion is Nick Newell, who is also undefeated.
XFC 22 is on Friday, February 22, from the Grady Cole Center in Charlotte, NC. It can be seen on AXS TV.
