Scott Holtzman

Hot Sauce


Second straight KO loss
April 10, 2021
Holtzman lost to Mateusz Gamrot via KO (punches) at 1:22 of Round 2 at UFC on ABC 2 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
The picture of inconsistency throughout his entire run with the company, this marked the second straight knockout defeat for "Hot Sauce." While Holtzman has never been able to put together any significant winning streak, the fact his chin is starting to betray him is a major, major concern. Hotlzman had never been stopped via strikes prior to his fight against Beneil Dariush last August. The Tennessee native is now 37 years of age and his future would appear to be exceedingly bleak if these sudden durability issues are a long-term concern. With the UFC cutting aging fighters left and right, Holtzman probably needs a win his next time out to save his job.

Winning streak snuffed out
August 9, 2020
Holtzman lost to Beneil Dariush via KO (spinning backfist) at 4:38 of Round 1 at UFC on ESPN+ 32 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Holtzman had the cards stacked against him as a (+170) betting underdog going up against a heavy opponent, and he managed just nine significant strikes before getting slept in the opening round. Dariush was simply the superior fighter both in the clinch and at a distance, so it felt inevitable this stoppage was coming. Holtzman will take home 20 percent of Dariush's purse after his opponent missed weight, but that's just about the only positive takeaway here. While he's an exciting fighter, the ceiling here is limited at 36 years old.
