Michael Chiesa Determined to Continue Fighting Despite Recent Loss
Michael Chiesa, the welterweight grappler, is not ready to retire from mixed martial arts despite suffering his third consecutive loss at UFC 291. Chiesa, who recently underwent surgery for a back injury, dropped a one-sided opening round loss to Kevin Holland via a D’Arce choke submission. Despite suggestions of retirement, Chiesa is determined to prove himself and has no plans of hanging up his gloves just yet.
Chiesa’s recent loss to Holland at UFC 291 in Salt Lake City marked his third career D’Arce choke submission defeat. Prior to this, he had been sidelined since November 2021 due to a back injury and had not competed since his unanimous decision loss to Sean Brady at the UFC Apex facility. Chiesa also suffered a D’Arce choke loss to Vicente Luque at UFC 265.

He stated that while people are saying he should retire and become a broadcaster, he is not ready to call it quits. Chiesa acknowledged that he has more to prove to himself and is determined to continue fighting.
Throughout his career in the UFC, Chiesa has achieved victories over notable fighters such as Al Iaquinta, Francisco Trinaldo, Jim Miller, Beneil Dariush, Carlos Condit, Diego Sanchez, Neil Magny, and former lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos.
Despite his recent setbacks, Chiesa’s determination to continue fighting remains strong. MMA fans are left wondering if he can bounce back from his losses and make a successful comeback in the octagon.
