Kyle Daukaus


Now facing Julian Marquez
November 11, 2021
Daukaus will face Julian Marquez in a middleweight bout Feb. 19, reports.
Daukaus hasn't won a fight since 2020, losing a unanimous decision to Phil Hawes in May of 2021 before fighting to a no-contest against Kevin Holland in October. He was set for a rematch with Holland in November before his opponent was forced to withdraw, a fate which also befell his replacement opponent, Roman Dolidze. He'll have to wait a few more months to return to the Octagon and will do so against a fighter who won both of his fights in 2021.

Facing Kevin Holland again
October 5, 2021
Daukaus will get a rematch against Kevin Holland in Las Vegas on Nov. 13, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Daukaus appeared to have earned a first-round submission win over Holland on Saturday, but replay revealed an accidental clash of heads, causing referee Dan Miragliotta to change the result to a no contest. Daukaus won just one of his first three UFC fights prior to his previous matchup against Holland, while Holland is still looking for his first win of 2021 after losing twice prior to Saturday's fight.
Fights Kevin Holland to no contest
October 2, 2021
Daukaus and Kevin Holland fought to a no contest at 3:34 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
Daukaus appeared to have picked up arguably the biggest win of his career with a beautiful rear-naked choke, but the point of replay is getting the call right, and referee Dan Miragliotta did so after going to the video tape. It was determined that an accidental clash of heads between Daukaus and Holland led to the sequence that ultimately ended the fight. It was clear that Daukaus planned on leaning on his grappling game in this one, and he's likely to go right back to that game plan if the UFC re-books this fight -- something Holland asked for the second it was over.
