No.7-ranked Derek Brunson takes on No.10-ranked Kevin Holland in middleweight action on Saturday night at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On his last outing, Brunson stopped Edmen Shahbazyan in the third round in August. The eternal middleweight contender is leading a three-game winning streak since losing to current middleweight king Israel Adesanya at UFC 230.
Holland took the MMA world by storm in 2020. He has competed five times in the past seven months, winning them all, including four by stoppage. More recently, Holland scored arguably the biggest victory of their career, knocking out former middleweight champion Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza in the first round.
A win for Brunson puts him in the top five and comes close to a title shot. For Holland, it’s a win in his very first UFC main event and a chance to extend his winning streak to six and move into the top five.
