Great Fight Tonight: Joey Holt vs Justin Edwards at Gladiators of the Cage 20
In the main event of Gladiators of the Cage XX, a UFC veteran battles a Bellator veteran for Lightweight gold.
Justin Edwards was cut from UFC’s roster last June after his third straight loss inside the Octagon. Saturday will be “Fast Eddie’s” first fight outside of the UFC since 2010.
The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) veteran will battle Joey Holt, who is currently riding a four-fight winning streak, including three savage finishes.
In only his second professional bout, “The Hitman” earned a vicious knockout victory over Clint Musser at Bellator 51. Even with the win, Holt’s career in Bellator halted from there, and he has gone 5-2 since on the regional scene.
If Holt can finish Edwards impressively this weekend, he deserves a shot inside the Octagon.
