Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight veteran Derek Brunson will try to quell the uprising of 185-pound prospect Kevin Holland in the UFC Vegas 22 main event TONIGHT (Sat., March 20, 2021) inside APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Check out their pre-fight video preview embedded above.
Brunson (21-7) is looking to reestablish himself as a legitimate contender for the 185-pound throne. The 36 year-old Strikeforce import bounced back from a crushing defeat to Israel Adesanya to capture three in a row, including his recent spoiler over Edmen Shahbazyan.
Holland (21-5) made a name for himself on Season 2 of Dana White’s “Contender Series” back in summer 2018, but his career didn’t take off until two years later. “Trailblazer” has won five straight, with four of those victories coming by way of knockout.
