After Diego Sanchez terminated his collaboration with the UFC, Donald Cerrone, a fighter Sanchez was scheduled to fight on May 8, found himself in trouble. The UFC has announced that Cowboy will remain on the UFC on ESPN 24 show program and will find him a replacement opponent.
Fortunately for them, some fighters wanted to fight. The first of them did not surprise anyone, since it is about Kevin Holland, a fighter who has already confirmed that he is ready to accept any fight that suits his size, regardless of the date and opponent.
After recording two convincing defeats in a short time, first by Derek Brunson and then by Marvin Vettori, Holland wants to try himself against someone who will certainly not abused him five rounds on the ground floor. " I’ll run my ass off I’ll sleep upstairs with my heat maxed out and a suna suit on your a legend nothing but respect @cowboycerrone !" "I’ll gladly step up Probably come in around 175 but if the cowboy needs a dog to go along for the ride maybe show you a few tricks....."
@seanshelby @mickmaynard2 @ufc I’d tag the boss but yeah I’m low key on time out love you boss
@koreps" Holland announced, tagging the UFC’s matchmakers, but not Dan White, who didn’t really have nice words for him after the last fight.
After becoming only the third fighter in UFC history to record five wins in a single year last year, “Trailblazer” became the man to make seven UFC appearances in the shortest amount of time with two appearances this year.

It only took him 11 months to do that. Already after the penultimate fight, he revealed that he would do his next performance in the welterweight category, but he briefly gave up on the idea of losing weight when an offer to fight Vettori appeared.
He returned to the aforementioned intention, but he has not yet brought his body into a state where he can reduce his weight to 77 kilograms in eight days. The challenge also came from a fighter who would have no problem losing weight.
It’s Emil Meek, a Norwegian fighter who last performed in February last year, so before Holland started his lineup. He was then defeated by Jake Matthews, his third defeat in a row. He has been looking for victory since December 2016, when he defeated Jordan Mein in his UFC debut.
