“I ended my career – I officially retired,” the American MMAfighting fighter quotes. “I’m happy with everything and until something super-duper magical comes along, I’m quite happy with the way things are.”
“I am grateful to Khamzat for showing me the right direction. I like this guy. I’m thinking about hanging a poster with Chimaev in my bathroom.”
Recall that on September 10 at UFC 279 in Las Vegas, Kevin Holland, on short notice, accepted the fight with Khamzat Chimaev in catchweight, losing to the Chechen fighter by strangulation D’Ars at around 2:13 of the first round.
Prior to this, the former top UFC middleweight had won two welterweight victories, finishing with a TKO of Alex Oliveira and a choke of Tim Means.
