Kevin Holland and Charlie Ontiveros face off in a middleweight bout for the co-main event of UFC Vegas 12 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. 

This fight was originally supposed to be against Makhmud Muradov but he has withdrawn so a new opponent has been selected.

Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland comes into this fight with a 19-5 record overall and coming into this one he has won three fights in a row. Holland’s last fight came in September of 2020 against Darren Stewart and he was able to win that one by split decision. Holland outstruck Stewart 74-57, but he was taken down twice so there were some questions when it went to the judges' scorecard. Holland is averaging 4.69 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 2.85 significant strikes per minute. Holland is mostly a standup fighter but he is averaging 0.96 takedowns every 15 minutes, and he is successful on 36 percent of his attempts. Holland stops 54 percent of his opponent’s takedown attempts and he has 0.8 submission attempts every 15 minutes.

Charlie Ontiveros is a late addition to this fight and he will be making his UFC debut in this fight. Ontiveros comes into this fight with an 11-6 record overall and he comes into this fight having won two fights in a row. Ontiveros’s last fight came against Washington Luiz late in 2019 and in that fight he was able to win by knockout early in the 1st round. Each of his last two wins has been knockouts in the 1st round. Ontiveros is going to have his hands full in this fight but he can’t be scared and he needs to try and use his hands early. The longer this fight goes on, the worse the chance that Ontiveros has to come away with a victory. 

Holland is the better fighter and it’s not going to take him too long to finish the fight. Look for Holland to win this fight early by knockout. For added value take Holland to win this fight in the first round.
