UFC 227 has shaped up to be a relatively exciting fight card. Even though one of the biggest fights between top light heavyweight contenders Alexander Gustafsson and Volkan Oezdemir has been pulled from the card due to injuries to both the fighters, it is still offering fight fans many other equally thrilling match-ups. The UFC have now added another great fight to the card between middleweights Thiago Santos and Kevin Holland.
Santos lost his last fight against former WSOF middleweight champion David Branch. However, he was on a four fight win-streak before his loss in April and will be looking to get back to winning ways. On the other hand, Holland recently improved his MMA record to 12-3 by picking up an impressive victory on Dana White’s Contender Series. He is currently riding high on a four fight win streak.
Santos vs. Holland is an exciting match-up between a legendary veteran and a young up-and-comer. Their battle will likely take place on the preliminary card of UFC 227.
