Kevin Holland and Jacare Souza face off in a middleweight bout in a main card showdown at the UFC 256 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. 

Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland comes into this fight with a 20-5 record overall and coming into this one he has won four fights in a row. Holland’s last win came against Charlie Ontiveros in October of 2020 and he was able to lock in the fight by submission. Holland is a very talented fighter and maybe he is going to finally get his chance to make a run at the belt. Holland comes into this fight averaging 4.68 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 2.80 significant strikes per minute. Holland is averaging 1.21 successful takedowns every 15 minutes and he is successful on 42 percent of his takedown attempts. Holland is also averaging 0.8 submission attempts every 15 minutes. 

On the other side of this fight is Jacare Souza who comes into this fight with a 26-8 record overall but coming into this one he has lost two straight fights. Souza’s last fight came against Jan Blachowicz in November of 2019 and he was competitive but lost the fight by split decision. Souza’s last win came all the way back in November of 2018 against Chris Wiedman and in that fight he won by knockout. Souza is averaging 2.54 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 2.81 significant strikes per minute. Souza is also stopping 60 percent of his takedown attempts. Souza is also averaging 1.4 submission attempts every 15 minutes. 

There is no chance that Holland should be the underdog in this fight. There is no doubt that Holland is having a step up in competition, but he should find success in getting the job done in this one. Holland's power is going to be too much as Holland comes away with the victory.
