Top MMA News has confirmed with sources very close to the fight that Mark Holst will make his first step back to the UFC at WRECK MMA on January 28th in 2011.  Holst made two appearances in the UFC in 2010 but unfortunately lost them both and will now embark on his comeback to the big show.

Holst will fight Showtime Wedderburn on WRECK's fifth show and second at the Casino du Lac-Lemay.   Wedderburn will be making his return to the Ottawa/Gatineau promotion having lost to Martin Grandmont at WRECK MMA 3 earlier in 2010.  This is the second fight…

Wow! 

My hat is off to OAMA and Holst. I really didn't think they'd put him in against a guy that can bang like this. These are the kinds of fights that are going to send him back to the bigs. Double Wow.

I said i would pay double to see this fight in another thread SO: If you are in the ottawa area, I am buying an extra ticket for whoever calls dibs.

         I mean this seriously: What weight is this going to be at?

     Please Baby Jesus, Buddah, Santa etc let Showtime make weight for this…

That's funny I saw Mark last night and he made no mention of it.

 

Great fight. I will make the trip to Ottawa to watch this one for sure.

I heard that Wedderburn agreed to give up 50% of his purse if he doesn't make weight for this one.

I guess that means Wedderburn has already given up half his purse….

This card is stacked with good talent and solid matchups so far.  I imagine that Bernadel and Morvan will be on it as well.

I don't understand why promoters would hire Wedderburn at 170 after his last three weigh-ins? Why wouldn't the mma community just consider him a 185 from now on.

Showtime's lucky to even get in the ring with a guy as classy as Mark. The only reason he's getting the fight is because he was acting tough when surrounded by goons and talking smack after the last show about how he beat some guy that knocked Mark out. I know Showtime posted a comment on the event page on facebook about how he'll be sitting in the front row… maybe when Mark hits you so hard you fall out the ring you punk!

Well Mark is a 155'er. There is no way in hell Showtime is making 155, I would assume this is a welterweight contest.

I'm pretty sure both will be at 170 for this fight.

Showtime isn't going to be overweight and give up 50% of his purse.

These guys legitimately hate each other.  I'm not typically a fan of these matchups, UNLESS it's like this one with an exciting matchup.

 

If a fight is a good matchup, and both guys dislike each other, then Party on!  I'll be there to watch this go down.

 

Looking forward to it.

Well if Mark and Showtime hate each other it's because Showtime was an A-Hole. Mark doesn't start shit, that I know.

This card looks absolutely ridiculous…  4 of my coaches/trainers are
fighting!  I'm REALLY pumped for the Holst/Wedderburn fight…

 

Wreck is REALLY shaping up to be one of the BEST MMA promotions in Canada!

I cannot see Mark running his mouth off at all.  Holst is extremely respectful the times that I have met him.
