Kyle Daukaus is now used to the fact that he expects the same from Kevin Holland, saying that his jiu-jitsu is good but his fighting is underrated
Expecting the same and not getting any different
“He’s got very, very good jiu-jitsu. I think his jiu-jitsu is kind of underrated. It’s his takedown defense that is his big factor, it’s his kryptonite,” Daukaus explained to MMAMania.com. “He can get off of his back very easily and he’s very explosive off the bottom, but I don’t really think we’ll see anything different from him....” The UFC Vegas 38's main card, headlined by Thiago Santos against Johnny Walker, is held at UFC Apex on Saturday, October 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada. These days Holland is more serious about his combat training. While Daukaus anticipates his opponent to take off new quirks, the younger brother of Daukaus does not forget that Holland will be changing overwhelmingly.
The match versus Derek Brunson and Marvin Vettori is Holland's first since a pair of major events took place within three weeks, respectively. Holland used to be one of the 2020 combatants, winning five in seven months. He gained four knockouts and 3 night bonuses along the road. After his defeats back to back, his third struggle of 2021 hopes to get back on track.
A fight that could change the careers of both skilled fighters
Kyle Daukaus gets back to the UFC cage after a tough match against Phil Hawes. Now, his fight against Holland will be his fourth that would make or break his career. If he wins, his career gets boosted and would ultimately consider him as one of the most skilled fighters in UFC. Aware of what’s about to come, he explained how eager and ready he was to face Holland soon.
“It’s important for me to make a statement in every single fight that I have but especially this one because he has a number next to his name,” Daukaus told UFC.com. “He’s a good opponent, a game opponent. He comes to fight every single time. He likes to talk when he's there, so I look forward to seeing what he has to say.” Daukaus said.
Both Holland and Daukaus have a total of 25 records, and both aim to reverse the trend and return to the winner's circle. Knowing how much Holland wants this battle, the door might potentially be opened if he could have his hand lifted by October 2.
