UFC 272: Kevin Holland vs. Alex Oliveira Betting Information
A very tough road for Kevin Holland for the past year and out of the three matches he had, two were losses and one ended in a no-contest. Prior to that, Holland was one of the prime fighters in the UFC having won eight of his last nine matches. The “Trailblazer” sudden dip is just unlikely and he seemed uninterested to finish his matches during the losses. Nonetheless, Holland will always look for the knockout first and can also have a decent ground game if his opponent decides to go there. He should find his momentum by the end of the first round and get more competitive from there.
The 34-year-old Alex Oliveira had a spurt of winning during his last four years. He had eight fights in the UFC and between that, he was able to pull out back-to-back wins over Max Griffin and Peter Sobotta. Some say that “Cowboy” should already hang up his gloves but he is still determined to finish his matches from the way he moved. With a stroke of luck, the fight can move to Oliveira’s advantage as he looks to engage Holland in a striking match. However, he should approach this fight more cautiously as his youth is already going away from him. Holland is a dangerous fighter to dance with if Oliveira would risk absorbing the hits.
