At just 22-years-old, Holloway (pictured) has already established himself as one of the UFC’s top young fighters. With a record of 11-3, the Hawaii native rectified a slide of two straight defeats in 2013 consisting of a split-decision loss to Dennis Bermudez and a unanimous decision loss to Conor McGregor, and has since put together a so far perfect 2014 boasting four consecutive wins featuring 3 knockouts and 1 submission. Holloway most recently blitzed Akira Corassani within one round at UFC Fight Night in Stockholm, Sweden on October 4.
In 2012 Cole Miller (21-1) opted to again compete at featherweight for the first time since 2006. The 30-year-old Ultimate Fighter veteran and former lightweight contender has had mixed success, going 3-3 since returning to 145lb; however, the BJJ black belt has proved his experience to be a powerful asset with victories over the likes of Ross Pearson at 155lbs, but more recently with a 2-fight win streak over Andy Ogle in 2013, and Sam Sicilia who fell victim to a second round rear-naked-choke submission back in January.
Victory over Sicilia marks the only bout for Miller this year. The American was set to face Conor McGregor in July, but a hand injury forced the American Top Team fighter to withdraw from the Dublin card, and Holloway will welcome Miller back to the Octagon.
A main event is yet to be announced, but other fights on the card include former Bellator bantamweight champion Zach Makovsky taking on Tim Elliot, and Ray Borg vs. Chris Kelades.
