In 2005, the UFC finally hit live television and it was then that professional fighter Matthew Holmes was hooked on MMA. He saw Rich Franklin tko the “World’s Most Dangerous Man” Ken Shamrock in the main event and he knew that he wanted to started fighting.
After 16 amateur fights, Holmes decided to turn pro in June of 2016 and on Saturday night, he will have more eyes on him than he has ever had when he takes on internet sensation, Travis Robertson aka “Mr. Obnoxious.”
Both fighters like to stand and bang and are looking to finish this fight early.
“I'm excited to get back in there. I'm going to finish Travis in the first round. I don't see him standing with me very long after I hit him. He’s going to shoot and I’ll stop it. I'm a better striker and I feel I'm more experienced,” states Holmes.
Holmes knows that people from all over the world will be watching and more than likely rooting against him when he takes on the very popular Robertson. When asked about this opportunity this is what he had to say:
“I don't know a lot about Travis honestly. He has some funny videos and that's about all I know. He's definitely the most famous guy I'll fight so far. That just puts more eyes on me. I think I'm going to surprise quite a few people in this fight. Hype is hype. I never let it get to me. He seems to be very composed and the pressure won't get to him either. We're both are fighters and will be ready when the cage door closes.”
On Saturday night, Holmes plans on making a name for himself by knocking out Mr. Obnoxious, so get your tickets now!
