Kevin Holland is 1 of the hottest names at 185 lbs. following knocking out Ronaldo Souza with a punch from his again (View IT!) past weekend at UFC 256 to protected his fifth straight get in 2020. Holland did his greatest to simply call out Khamzat Chimaev, but as the bout seems not likely to materialize, “Trail Blazer” did the future ideal matter by just lately conversing some trash to Derek Brunson and his “awkward” placing.
Holland only recently began focusing on Brunson as his subsequent opponent, but he continue to took to Twitter today to comply with up.
However, just a couple several hours later on, Brunson did without a doubt react to Holland’s callout, accepting the battle and requesting UFC write up the contract.
In addition, Brunson took issue with Holland’s intention of battling 6 occasions in 2020, pointing out that a lengthy suspension subsequent a challenging reduction could definitely disrupt those people designs.
Even though he are not able to claim to have fairly as substantially momentum as his opponent, the No.7-ranked Middleweight has received his very last three bouts, like a considerable main party upset above Edmen Shahbazyan.
