Holland knocked out veteran Ronaldo Souza at UFC 256 past weekend with punches off his again on the ground.

One of Chimaev’s emblems is that he fights typically and frequently. Back in July, Chimaev established the UFC report for the shortest turnaround for a fighter in promotional heritage, winning two fights about John Phillips and Rhys McKee in a 10-working day span, and in different weight courses, to boot. He then moved back up to 185lbs and KOed veteran Gerald Meerschaert in September, and he was supposed to combat Demian Maia in Oct. The UFC loves Chimaev’s willingness to battle often and rewarded him with a matchup towards Edwards.
Holland, nevertheless, believes it really should be he that is the one getting the credit history for wanting to battle seemingly just about every weekend. While Chimaev’s three fights in 6 months are spectacular, Holland has 5 in 8 months, and there is a thing to be stated about that. Chimaev is clearly occupied getting ready for Edwards and does not want to consider his aim absent from that tricky fight. But if “Big Mouth” Holland can continue to chirp him and get underneath his skin, it’s possible we will see a battle in between these two pretty lively MMA fighters sometime in 2021.
Do you hope the UFC is in a position to e-book Kevin Holland vs. Khamzat Chimaev in 2021?
