Kevin Holland -130 vs. Ronaldo Souza + 100
In the second fight of the main card, we’ll have a glaring striker-vs.-grappler contest. Kevin Holland is a young but vetted up-and-comer, while Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza is a decorated veteran known as one of the best grapplers in the game.
But time is not on Souza’s side. At 41, he’s into a phase of his career where if he does not get a spectacular finish, he loses to competent strikers. And Holland, with the longest wingspan in the division, combined with excellent precision striking, certainly will have the advantage on the feet.
At just 28, Holland remains fresh and durable and likely has been getting better through his UFC run. Offensively he will be a force, but the real question is whether his takedown defense will be able to keep the fight in his preferred position.
