Longtime Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight veteran Derek Brunson will look to halt the rapid rise of surging 185-pound prospect Kevin Holland in the upcoming UFC Vegas 22 main event, scheduled for Sat., March 20, 2021 inside APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Now they have an official poster.
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.
Elsewhere on the UFC Vegas 22 fight card (see it here), UFC light heavyweight contenders Paul Craig and Jamahal Hill collide in the co-main event. In addition, Macy Chiasson and Marion Reneau hook ‘em up at 135 pounds.
