The UFC Fight Night: Grasso vs. Shevchenko 2 card will soon be upon us, and one of the more anticipated fights of the night is a match-up between Kevin Holland (+125) and Jack Della Maddalena (-105). Both fighters have made waves in the sport since their respective debuts in 2014, but who’s going to come out on top when they face off? Let’s break down each fighter ahead of this intriguing matchup and try to predict a winner.
Kevin “Trailblazer” Holland has quickly become an exciting addition to the UFC middleweight division over his past few bouts. In just three appearances for the organization, he has already earned himself two performance bonuses thanks to his unorthodox striking style and tactical approach inside the octagon. He boasts an impressive record of 17 wins (10 by stoppage) against five losses in his professional career so far making him one of MMA’s rising stars at 185lbs.
Jack “Hot Sauce” De La Maddalena is no slouch either however, with 12 wins (six stoppages) against seven losses throughout his own run as a middleweight fighter thus far. Although he hasn’t managed to make quite as big of an impression during his time within the UFC compared to Holland, he holds victories over some quality opponents including Gerald Meerschaert whose only other loss came at the hands of current champion Israel Adesanya last year – highlighting that Hot Sauce can certainly hang with elite competition given an opportunity or two in there cage battles.
What makes this fight particularly difficult to call is both athlete’s willingness to stand and trade strikes despite their respective backgrounds; De La Maddalena being more renowned for submissions while Holland carries more knockout power into battle typically – though neither man truly shies away from exchanges on their feet regardless! This creates somewhat unpredictable conditions which could play into either man’s hands providing favourable opportunities along different paths depending on how things unfold early on during this expectedly thrilling clash between two exceptional talents ready for higher level competition in 2020..
Given both men’s considerable skillsets it’s hard not draw any firm conclusions here regarding a possible victor before we step foot inside The Bubble – ultimately we’ll have our definitive answer once these warriors step into combat! With that said however if we had too pick someone going off recent form alone it would be tough not favour Team Trailblazer here based solely on what we’ve seen from him since joining forces with Dana White & Co., putting together several highlights reel performances that could point towards another win coming up soon enough! But don’t forget about Hot Sauce though – stranger things have happened after all…
