Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.05.2013

MMA Junkie reports that a fight between Kurt Holobaugh (7-0 MMA, 0-0 SF) and lightweight Pat Healy (28-16 MMA, 6-1 SF) is now official for Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine, the final event for the promotion. The event takes place on January 12 at the Chesapeake Energy Center in Oklahoma City. Main card fights air on Showtime with preliminary card fights (including Healy vs Holobough) air on Showtime Extreme.
