Kevin ‘Trailblazer’ Holland Aims to Impress with Enhanced Grappling
For its ninth pay-per-view event of 2023, the UFC is gearing up for an exciting show at Salt Lake City’s Delta Center. Following the success of the recent International Fight Week in Las Vegas, the promotion has curated a lineup that promises to deliver an unforgettable night of mixed martial arts action. Headlining the event is the charismatic Kevin ‘Trailblazer’ Holland, known for his entertaining fighting style and highlight-reel finishes.
Holland, who has recently competed in the welterweight division , has faced tough opponents such as Khamzat Chimaev, Stephen Thompson, and Santiago Ponzinibbio. After a string of losses at middleweight, Holland made the decision to move down to 170 pounds. This move was prompted by his opponents, Derek Brunson and Marvin Vettori, exposing weaknesses in his ground game.
Recognizing the importance of improving his grappling skills, Holland has enlisted a full-time wrestling coach. He is determined to prove that he can handle grapplers effectively and make a serious run towards a championship. Holland expressed his excitement about the upcoming fight, stating, ‘I have a full-time wrestling coach now, and I really don’t see us hitting the ground. That’s the number one job this weekend; to go out there and show them that I can do better against grapplers than I’ve been showing. I think that’s why I’m so excited. I get to go out there, right some wrongs, and then see what’s up, see what’s next.’
If Holland can demonstrate his improved grappling skills against his opponent, he will secure a spot in the top 15 rankings at welterweight. This achievement would not only elevate his status in the division but also change the perception of his ground game.
