This is the UFC 272 live blog for Kevin Holland vs. Alex Oliveira, a main card welterweight contest for UFC 272 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Over the past two years, Holland has become one of the more popular fighters in the UFC, bursting into prominence after a sensational 2020 campaign that saw him win five fights in one calendar year. Holland lost two of his fights consecutively since then, before losing to Kyle Daukaus in No Contest. Now Holland looks to replicate his 2020 success in a new division, dropping down to welterweight with plans on an eventual title run.
In contrast to Holland, Oliveira has been a going concern in the UFC’s welterweight division since 2015, where he has amassed a 11-9 record with 1 No Contest. “Cowboy” has had a tough run of late though, losing his previous 3 fights and 6 of his last 8.
