UFC Vegas 16 poster drops for ‘Hermansson vs Holland’

New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight contender Jack Hermansson will headline the upcoming UFC Vegas 16 mixed martial arts (MMA) event next month in Las Vegas, Nevada, taking on streaking 185-pound standout Kevin Holland.

And now they have an official poster.

Hermansson (21-5) is currently ranked No. 4 in the division and has now captured five of his last six, including last July’s first-round submission over Kelvin Gastelum, though he may be faced with a no-win situation against the 20-5 Holland this December.

That’s because “Trailblazer” is unranked at 185 pounds, so a win for “The Joker” does nothing to improve his stock. A loss, however, and Hermansson can probably say goodbye to a middleweight title shot for the foreseeable future.

UFC Vegas 16 will also feature the light heavyweight showdown between Jamahal Hill and Ovince Saint Preux, while Bethe Correia and Wu Yanan collide in women’s bantamweight action. See the latest UFC Vegas 16 fight card and ESPN+ lineup right here.
