Mixed martial arts
Holobaugh made his professional MMA debut in March 2011. Over the next year-and-a-half, he amassed an undefeated record of 9 wins and no losses, with all but one of his wins coming by stoppage before the final bell.
Ultimate Fighting Championship
Following the Strikeforce event, the organization was folded and merged with the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Holobaugh's contract was honored and he made his UFC debut against Steven Siler at UFC 159 on April 27, 2103. He lost the fight by unanimous decision and was subsequently released by the promotion.
Post UFC career
After his UFC release, Holobaugh fought for various independent MMA promotions. He found the most success in Titan Fighting Championships, where he held both the Featherweight Championship and Interim Lightweight Championship.
Ultimate Fighting Championship return
Following an impressive bout on Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series 1, Holobaugh was brought back to the UFC. He faced Raoni Barcelos at UFC Fight Night: dos Santos vs. Ivanov and lost via knockout in the third round. Despite the loss, the win earned Holobaugh his first Fight of the Night bonus award.
