One of the Ohio Valley’s top fighters will get the opportunity of a lifetime, as Indianapolis native Andrew Holbrook (11-0, 1-0 UFC) will take on Sage Northcutt (7-0, 2-0) at UFC on FOX 18 in January.
Holbrook, who is nominated for the , made his UFC debut at UFC on FOX 16 in July and earned a split decision over Ramsey Nijem.
Northcutt is one of the UFC’s most visible fighters, as the 19-year-old has been fast-tracked early in his career. The young Texan is 2-0 so far in the Octagon, as he stopped Frank Trevino via TKO in just 57 seconds at UFC 192 in October and then submitted Cody Pfister in the second round at UFC Fight Night 80 earlier this month.
UFC on FOX takes place on Jan. 30 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.
