During the morning staff meeting XFC President John Prisco said this of the matchup. “This fight I have wanted to see more than any other potential match up within the XFC roster. Hicks vs Holtzman is a classic, regarding their fighting styles. You have the raw power and unbelievable athleticism of Scott Holtzman, against one the most cagey, well rounded 155 pound fighters the XFC has, Jason Hicks. I have been a huge fan of both since they came into the XFC and I knew their paths would cross sooner or later, now is the time! I only predict one thing regarding this fight, it will be a WAR !”
