Named Kevin Holland's fee for the fight with Khamzat Chimaev

Having agreed on a short notice to take the fight with Khamzat Chimaev, the American Kevin Holland received an unprecedented fee for a fighter of his status.

Informed sources close to the situation say that in the 133 seconds spent in the octagon with Borz, Holland, who suffered an early defeat by choke, replenished his bank account with 800 thousand dollars.

Recall that on September 10 at UFC 279 in Las Vegas, Kevin Holland was supposed to fight with Daniel Rodriguez, however, in the end he got a Chechen fighter as an opponent, who could not cope with the weight cut and lost the fight with Nate Diaz.

In addition to a huge fee, Kevin Holland will headline the event for his next fight and headline UFC on ESPN 42 in Orlando on December 3 with Stephen Thompson.
