Dropping to welterweight
December 3, 2021
Holland (ankle) announced that he's moving to welterweight, Damon Martin of reports.
Holland is winless in his past three bouts and was having some issues adding strength at middleweight, so he's opted to drop to 170 pounds. He was slated to fight Kyle Daukaus in mid-November but was forced to withdraw due to an ankle injury, and he's aiming for a return to the Octagon in late January or early February, though his next matchup has yet to be scheduled.
Out of Daukaus fight
October 27, 2021
Holland has been forced to withdraw from his Nov. 13 bout against Kyle Daukaus due to injury, Nolan King of USA Today reports.
This was supposed to be a rematch from an Oct. 2 bout that ended in a no-contest. At this point it would be surprising if the UFC tried to get Daukaus a replacement. It's likely these two run it back whenever Holland is fully healthy again.
Rematch against Kyle Daukaus set
October 5, 2021
Holland will take on Kyle Daukaus against in Las Vegas on Nov. 13, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Holland looked to have lost to Daukaus in their previous matchup, which occurred this past Saturday, but Daukaus' apparent submission victory was changed to a no contest after replay reviewed revealed an accidental clash of heads. Holland will be looking to get back into the win column after going undefeated in three straight fights, while Daukaus has just one win in his last four.
Ends up with no contest in Vegas
October 2, 2021
Holland and Kyle Daukaus fought to a no-contest at 3:34 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It's a third straight fight without a victory for Holland, which is obviously no good, but it could have been worse for Holland had referee Dan Miragliotta not looked at the replay and moved off his original call. Holland, who everyone knows has a major deficiency in the grappling department, found himself being choked out by Daukaus following an accidental clash of heads which clearly compromised him. Miragiliotta was informed he could use replay to make a decision, and did so, changing the fight to a no-contest. Holland asked the UFC to run this one back following its conclusion, and it wouldn't be the least bit surprising if that's the route the company decided to go considering the controversial ending.
Facing Daukaus in October
July 5, 2021
Holland will fight Kyle Daukaus in a middleweight bout at UFC Fight Night on Oct. 2, Damon Martin of reports.
Holland took a tough loss to Marvin Vettori in April, as Vettori dominated the main event and won via unanimous decision. It's an opportunity to get back on track for Holland, who also lost via unanimous decision to Derek Brunson in March. Daukaus carries a 1-2 record in the promotion after making his UFC debut last summer, and he was stifled by Phil Hawes in May during his last bout.
