A Featherweight bout between The Ultimate Fighter Live contestant Justin Lawrence and 1-1 UFC fighter Max Holloway has been added to UFC 150 in Denver.
Lawrence who was the The St. Louis Golden gloves champion and national kickboxing champion was a stand-out and favorite to win TUF (15) Live, is now dropping down to Featherweight, and will face impressive and very tough Max Holloway on what will likely be part of the preliminary card. Lawrence just fought at the TUF Live finale where he KO'd John Cofer with a highlight reel head kick to the face.
Holloway also fought last on the same TUF Live finale card a few weeks ago where he put on a very impressive striking clinic against Pat Schilling, unfortunately Holloway was unable to finish Schilling, but he still showed fans that he is someone to take note of, being the youngest fighter in the UFC (20) he still actually has some filling out to do and with the skills he's already shown, he could turn out to be a force in the UFC's featherweight division, a win over Lawrence would definitely put the divison on notice.
Here's the UFC 150 fight card so far:
- Champ Benson Henderson vs. Frankie Edgar ( lightweight title bout)

- Ed Herman vs. Jake Shields
