Paddy Holohan-Willie Gates Added To UFC Fight Night 87

Paddy Holohan and Willie Gates will square off next month as part of UFC Fight Night 87.

The bout was recently added to the May 8 lineup from the Ahoy Rotterdam in the Netherlands. Alistair Overeem takes on Andrei Arlovski in the main event.

Holohan (12-2-1) has posted a 3-2 record over five Octagon appearances, but his two-fight win streak was snapped last October with a submission loss to Louis Smolka. The Irish fighter has topped Vaughan Lee, Shane Howell and Josh Sampo over the past two years.

Gates (12-6) was finished by Dustin Ortiz last August after stopping Darrell Montague earlier last year for his first UFC win. His dropped his debut – on short notice – to former top contender John Moraga in 2014.

Other planned bouts include Antonio Silva vs. Stefan Struve, Gunnar Nelson vs. Albert Tumenov and Germaine de Randamie vs. Anna Elmose.
