Kevin Holland


The No.15 ranked welterweight contender in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Kevin Holland, has been a fan favorite for his sportsman spirit to fight anyone anytime anywhere. The 31-year-old fighter is versatile enough to switch divisions from welterweight to middleweight at ease. Starting his professional career in 2015, ‘ Trailblazer’ currently boasts a record of 25 wins, 11 losses, and 1 no-contest. The majority of his finishes are via knockout(14), and submission(7). Apart from this, Holland also holds 12 first-round finishes so far, which makes his fight resume more decorative. Moreover, he has stepped up against some of the most fearsome and technical fighters in the UFC like Khamzat Chimaev, Stephen Thompson, Marvin Vettori, etc.


Before signing up for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, Kevin Holland was a former Xtreme Knockout(XKO) middleweight champion. Apart from that he has also competed in other promotions like Bellator, LFA, KOTC, etc. And like most UFC fighters, Holland also had his way into the UFC via Dana White’s Contender Series, where he faced Will Santiago Jr. and had a unanimous decision win in June 2018.


However, Kevin Holland’s last two outings did not favor him. He faced Jack Della Maddalena on September 16, 2023, and lost the bout via split decision. And his last fight against Michael Page was a unanimous decision win to Page at UFC 299 on March 9, 2024. Nevertheless, the 31-year-old American fighter is looking forward to bouncing back from his previous losing streak in his next outing. And for which, ‘Trailblazer’ is booked against Michal Oleksiejczuk at UFC 302 on June 1, 2024.
