Mateusz Gamrot finally lived up to the hype earlier today (Sat., Apr. 10, 2021) at UFC Vegas 23 live on ABC/ESPN+, ESPN from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nev., when the Polish contender finished lightweight veteran Scott Holtzman via second-round knockout (punches).
Gamrot was all over Holtzman from the opening bell. From takedown attempts to combinations from range, “Gamer” mixed in a little bit of everything. Holtzman is tough as nails and loaded up on all the counters he could, but it wasn’t enough. Gamrot eventually landed a perfectly-timed right hand that caught Holtzman on the chin. Holtzman fell to the canvas and “Gamer” finished his efforts with heavy ground-and-pound

This was the type of performance fans were hoping for when UFC signed Gamrot in 2020. The former KSW featherweight and lightweight champion seems to have all the ingredients to fight his way into the top 15 here in 2021 so it should be interesting to see what “Gamer” can do as he scales the jam-packed lightweight division.
