Dangerous selections to Kendall Grove and an over-the-hill Anderson Silva apart, Brunson has solely misplaced to the really elite. Holland has gained 8 of 9, however his finest wins in that stretch are in opposition to a short-notice Buckley and a fluky (however nonetheless superior) knockout over Jacare. I feel individuals additionally neglect that Holland has had some wonky judging work in his favor, as media scorecards overwhelmingly had him dropping the Meerschaert and Di Chirico fights. Brunson is somebody who depends on his quick-twitch athleticism rather a lot, and at 37, it looks as if a matter of time earlier than that backside falls out.

The struggle in opposition to Jacare is little doubt a one in 1,000,000 end, however it reveals the distinctive creativity that set’s the ‘Trailblazer’ aside. It is extremely doubtless that Brunson will take him down sooner or later within the struggle. Nonetheless, Brunson does additionally like to let his fingers fly. And you must favour Kevin Holland within the placing exchanges, 9 occasions out of 10. I do fear for Holland’s stamina, ought to the struggle go previous the third spherical although. So I’m gonna predict Holland to get the KO end within the second spherical, virtually in opposition to my higher judgement.

However Holland’s unprecedented 2020 has set himself up for some huge fights and expectations. I feel Holland will get the end, perhaps after the third spherical. I see Brunson getting drained and begin getting determined, after which, when issues open up, Holland goes to catch him. Holland by TKO within the third.
