Welterweight Kevin Holland again came to the rescue, this time less than 24 hours before his UFC Austin fight with Tim Means.
Holland’s manager, Oren Hodak, said the 29-year-old fighter on Friday stopped a would-be perfume thief in Austin by chasing him down on foot. Hodak said MMA Junkie Holland chased him after hearing another person shout about a stolen item. The manager was unaware of whether the alleged thief was apprehended. Holland returned several perfume bottles.
Holland, who competes in the ESPN-televised co-main event at Moody Center, said it was a good workout before the fight.
“Oren made the incorrect reservations so now we are just sitting here without anything to do,” Holland stated in a Hodak video that was sent to MMA Fighting. “We had got some water from the liquor and wine spot with coach, next thing you know, we see some guy running down the street – next thing you know, we see some guy running down the street. We opened our hearts and chased after the crackhead .”
Holland is not the only one to be a hero. This past month, the Texas resident rescued a driver from an overturned 18-wheel truck on a highway. In March, he disarmed a gunman at a restaurant. He also apprehended an accused car theft thief in October.
Holland stated in a past interview that he was a superhero fanatic as a kid. Holland was surprised at how frequently he gets in the middle.
” “You have to be cautious what you ask for,” he jokingly said. You ask for things, and then they happen. It’s hard to understand why. .”
