Hammond featherweight Kurt Holobaugh will make his Ultimate Fighting Championship debut this Saturday night, April 27, in Newark, N.J., on UFC 159, one of the biggest cards of the year.

Holobaugh moves back down to his natural weight class after fighting in the lightweight division facing lightweight journeyman Pat Healy, who is also on the undercard. Taking that fight on short notice against a guy like Healy on such a big stage should help prepare Holobaugh for this moment.

“My mind is set great, I got the goal set high, and I want to make a good impression on the UFC,” he said.

Holobaugh will face Ultimate Fighter alumnus Steven Siler, who is 3-1 in the UFC.

“From what I know about Siler, he’s very tough and comes to fight every time and this could be the fight of the night,” Holobaugh said.

That would be a great way to kick off the night, as Holobaugh and Siler are the very first fight on the card, and it airs live on facebook.com/UFC.
