Kevin Holland on Jack Della Maddalena

During the recent pre-fight press conference, Kevin Holland shared his thoughts on Jack Della Maddalena complaining about not being able to fight in Australia. “Be realistic. Do you think I wouldn’t go somewhere to fight somebody?” Holland said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.“… Bro, my second fight with the UFC was where? Nah, it was in China.

Do your homework, my boy. So why wouldn’t I go? If they cover my taxes, I’ll go anywhere. I’m pretty sure if they really wanted me to fight in Australia, they would’ve covered the taxes. I wasn’t asked to fight in Australia.

I was asked to fight in Vegas when the fight fell out with Kelvin Gastelum and old boy, and I’m here in Vegas”. “Old boy keeps crying about not being able to fight in Australia. ***********, if you were worth somebody coming out to Australia to fight you, they would’ve made sure somebody came to Australia to fight you.

You’ve got a Timex sponsorship. Be happy with that and shut the **** up. Holland further said: “I don’t need to do that too much because if I start to think about that too much I start to get a little cocky and big-headed, It’s best to always feel like you’re coming off a loss, two losses at that. It’s like your back is against the wall and you might get kicked out of the organization”.
