UFC welterweight contender Jack Della Maddalena continued his impressive run at UFC Noche by defeating Kevin Holland via split decision.

But despite a hard-fought win, the crowd present at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada did not chose the side of the 27-year-old. They started booing him after the Australian got his hand raised in the fight.

Maddalena still showed grace in his post-fight octagon interview by thanking the crowd for booing him.

With the victory on September 16, Jack Della Maddalena is now tied with Ian Garry for the longest winning streak in the 170-pound division. Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad are on a 12 and a 10-fight undefeated streak respectively.
