Not only did Holland (25-10 MMA, 12-7 UFC) reflect on Saturday’s split decision loss with compliments to his opponent Jack Della Maddalena (16-2 MMA, 6-0 UFC), he looked toward the future.
Already with his sights set on a fellow welterweight contender, Holland wants elevated stakes should his target be next.–
“Props to jack good guard I’d like to go watch it back!” Holland wrote. “I see y’all talking about poor performance I really honestly thought I out worked due but (what the hell) do I know for those that ride with me how about Neil Magny loser cuts there [sic] hair.”
Holland has been one of the promotion’s most active fighters since he joined the promotion in mid-2018, so a quick return could be in the cards. Magny (28-11 MMA, 21-10 UFC) most recently competed Aug. 19 in a unanimous decision loss to Ian Garry at UFC 292 in Boston.
With Saturday’s defeat, Holland had a two-fight winning streak snapped. Magny has alternated wins and losses over his most recent six outings.
