Going into the event Healy was one of the 22 competitors on the card fighting for his future with the world's biggest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion. After the big win, the 29-year-old says UFC officials informed him his next fight will take place under the UFC banner.

"Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a done deal," Healy told Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting in a post-fight interview following his victory over Holobaugh. "I mean they kind of talked to me right before this (interview) and said I was pretty much going to come over, so I would say yeah it's a done deal."

One UFC lightweight Healy has his eyes on is Joe Lauzon, a fighter with a reputation for his thrilling bouts and post fight bonuses -- which is exactly the reason Healy wants to trade fisticuffs with "J-Lau."

"I named Joe Lauzon earlier because I think he's a great opponent and he wins a lot of ‘Fight of the Night's' and I could use that nice little cushion money, you know, would just love to mix it up with a dude of his caliber."

I like Healy, but why would anyone want Lauzon?  He is one of the most dangerous guys in the UFC, IMO.  But if he wants a huge challenge, then Lauzon is your man.

Diving into the deep end. Might want to test the waters IMO. And if he thinks he's automatically getting a fight night bonus for fighting Joe he's probably gonna be on the wrong end of Joe winning another SOTN. Phone Post

This fight would be fucking amazing! I would love to see it.

As a huge Lauzon fan, I would have to say that Lauzon takes it but Healy is no joke.

Reed Rothchild -  Sounds like good fight.. But would like Healy to fight someone lower on the rankings first Phone Post

Healy has been fighting lower ranked guys for a while now, time for a step up IMO.

Healy's stand up looked suspect imo. Slow and little to no head movement. Almost like a lightweight fitch Phone Post
