Hawaii’s own, Max “Blessed” Holloway is stepping up, and filling the UFC Fight Night 53 void left by the injured, Korean Zombie.
UFC officials announced the new booking this afternoon.
UFC fight Night 53 goes down from the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden, on October 4.
The booking is a short turnaround for Holloway, who just fought last weekend against a very game UFC newcomer in Clay Collard.
Corassani last saw action in a losing effort to Dustin Poirier this past April.Tags: Akira Corassani, max holloway, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
