It is now being reported that he will take on the undefeated new comer Kurt Holobaugh on January 12. Healy was scheduled to fight Gilbert Melendez on two separate occasions but Melendez was forced out of both bouts with a shoulder injury. Holobaugh steps into the fight with a 7-0 record, and he will definitely trying to spoil Healy’s plans at locking up a spot in the UFC by scoring a win at the event.

Sources close to the contest confirmed that verbal agreements are in place for the match-up, although bout agreements should follow along shortly.
