Time to Hang Up the Boots
Mark “Boots” Holst will retire from Mixed Martial Arts following his upcoming MMA fight. Holst, who currently has an 8-3 record, will face Markhaile Wedderburn in a Welterweight fight at WRECK MMA on January 28. Win or lose, Holst will hang up the gloves following the fight.
Holst recently made the jump to the UFC where he lost two fights to Paul Sass and John Gunderson. One of the biggest highlights of Holst’s career was winning the XKL Lightweight belt with a submission over Corey Hill. Holst will now focus on other career opportunities.
