The promotion’s European branch announced the matchup via Twitter
on Friday. UFC Fight Night takes place at Ahoy Rotterdam in the
Netherlands on May 8 and is headlined by a heavyweight tilt pitting
Overeem against Andrei
Holohan went 2-1 in 2015, taking unanimous verdicts over Shane
Howell and Vaughan Lee
before falling to Louis
Smolka via second-round submission at UFC Fight Night in Dublin
last October. “The Hooligan” is 12-2-1 in his career, with eight
wins by tapout.
Gates is 1-2 in the Octagon since making his debut in 2014. He
earned his first promotional triumph over Darrell Montague at “The
Ultimate Fighter 21” finale but was stopped by Dustin
Ortiz in the third round at UFC Fight Night Nashville in his
last appearance this past August.
