American fighter Kevin Holland is ready to replace injured compatriot Sean Brady and face Australian Jack Della Maddalena in a week at UFC 290 in Las Vegas.
At the same time, Holland, who has a fight with Michael Chiesa scheduled for July 29, is not going to withdraw from this fight.
“Kevin Holland is ready to fight Jack Della Maddalena next week at 175 pounds catchweight and says he’s not pulling out of his fight against Michael Chiesa three weeks later at UFC 291,” according to MMAmania.
Kevin Holland got his career back on track in April with a third-round knockout of Santiago Ponzinibbio, and Jack Della Maddalena is on a four stoppage streak in the UFC.
At the moment, the Australian takes the fourteenth line in the UFC welterweight ranking, and the American is not in the top 15 best fighters in the division.
Recall that the UFC 290 tournament will take place on July 8 in Las Vegas, and its main event will be a featherweight unification fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Yair Rodriguez.
