Kevin Holland and Jorge Masvidal won’t be fighting each other come this Saturday at UFC 287, but the two surely got enough heat to launch against one another, as the recent verbal squabbling between the two seems to suggest.

At the fighter hotel prior to Saturday’s event in Miami, a heated altercation took place between Holland and Masvidal, and a short clip of the same has been doing numbers across multiple social media platforms.

In the 13-second clip, while being held back by his team members, “Trailblazer” is heard saying that Masvidal talks a lot of shit, indicating that Holland is not very happy with something “Gamebred” had said or did earlier, who is seen at the other end of the hotel lobby.

Kevin Holland & Jorge Masvidal have different fights at UFC 287

The clip was followed Holland saying on Instagram that UFC will be looking to switch opponents at UFC 287.

“Let me just go ahead and say it, that video’s going to come out, and then they’re probably going to do an opponent change again! F*ck!” Holland wrote in a now-deleted post on his Instagram.

As of now, Holland is slated to take on Santiago Ponzinibbio, while Masvidal’s challenge is Gilbert Burns.

Holland is currently on a two fight losing streak, having lost back to back against Khamzat Chimaev and Stephen Thompson at UFC 279 and UFC on ESPN 42 in September and December last year respectively.

Masvidal, meanwhile, has been on an even bigger decline, having lost all of his last three outings in the Octagon. After two consecutive losses to the former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, Masvidal suffered his latest setback against Colby Covington at UFC 272 in March last year.
