Middleweight Joseph Holmes (aka “Ugly Joe”) and Park Joon-yong will face off later this year.
Sherlock Holmes (8-2) and Parker (14-5) will meet at UFC’s October 29, 2022 Fight Night event, the location or location of which has yet to be announced. Sherlock Holmes and management company Iridium Sports Agency, announce the news Thursday.
After defeating Aaron Amedowski, Holmes will be looking to win two straight inside the UFC octagon. “Ugly Joe” joined the UFC last year, dropping his debut against Jamie Pickett shortly after. That loss ended a seven-game winning streak, but Holmes had a better night against Amedowski.
He will look forward to continued success against Park, who will enter the fray in a split-decision victory over Eryk Anders. That allowed him to bounce back from a nighttime loss to Gregory Rodriguez in the previous outing.
