The Hulk Meets Maldonado at UFC on FX 8


Hollett-LEAD-150x150Canada`s number 3 ranked Light Heavyweight Roger Hollett will make his sophomore appearance in the UFC`s octagon when he faces tougher than nails Fabio Maldonado at UFC on FX 8.

Hollett, who splits his training time between Titan`s MMA and Jacksons` MMA, will look to get his first UFC win as his octagon debut didn`t go his way when he dropped a unanimous decision to Matt Hamill at UFC 152. Prior to the Hamill loss Hollett was on a 5 fight win streak which included wins over Martin Desilet, John Hawk and Aaron Lofton.

Maldonado who is 1-3 in his octagon appearances is probably the best UFC Light Heavyweight with the worst UFC record. With his big show losses coming to the likes of Glover Teixiera, Igor Pokrajac and Kyle Kingsbury, Maldonado has not necessarily had the easiest fights so far in his big show career.

UFC on FX 8 goes down May 18th from the Arena Jaragua in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. The card will be headlined by a Middleweight  contest between Vitor Belfort and Luke Rockhold.
