Scott Holtzman and Dong Hyun Ma had a fun scrap at UFC Newark.
The two fighters met in a lightweight bout at the UFC Newark event on Saturday afternoon (August 3rd) from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on ESPN. Although the fight nearly went the distance, these two fighters put on a heck of a show for fans in attendance and watching at home.
Ma’s left eye was swollen up after the second round and the doctor stopped it. As a result, Holtzman got the TKO win.
