Holbrook in for Injured Koch vs. Nijem

Unbeaten as a professional, Indiana's Andrew Holbrook will make his UFC debut close to home, as he faces Ramsey Nijem in a lightweight bout at UFC Fight Night in Chicago on July 25.

Holbrook replaces the injured Erik Koch on the FOX-televised card, which is headlined by the long-awaited rematch between UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw and former titleholder Renan Barao.

A pro since 2012, Holbrook has finished all ten of his pro fights, nine in the first round and seven by way of submission. He will get a stern test in the form of former Ultimate Fighter finalist Nijem, who has won two of his last three in the Octagon.
