UFC Vegas 22: Derek Brunson vs. Kevin Holland live weigh-in results
UFC Vegas 22: Derek Brunson vs. Kevin Holland official weigh-in results.
We’re just a day away from arguably the most standout fighter of 2020 in the UFC, Kevin Holland, making his first Octagon appearance in 2021 and looking to continue his rise up the middleweight ranks as he meets veteran Derek Brunson, who’s looking for upper-echelon contender status, in the main event of UFC Vegas 22.
Before they can make the walk to the Octagon, however, they and the rest of the UFC Vegas 22 fighting crew must get through the official weigh-ins.
A near-decade veteran of the UFC, Brunson has enjoyed quite a bit of success in the promotion but has stumbled when it comes to facing upper-level competitors or rising up-and-comers, earning him a bit of a “gatekeeper” status. Brunson, however, enters this fight on a three-fight win streak, scoring decision wins over Elias Theodorou and Ian Heinisch and finishing Edmen Shahbazyan in August, which marked the first loss for “The Golden Boy.”
Holland, meanwhile, had a massive 2020 campaign in which he scored victories over Anthony Hernandez, Joaquin Buckley, Darren Stewart, Charlie Ontiveros and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, most of them by finish, tying the UFC record for most wins in a calendar year with five. It was a run so impressive that Holland earned FanSided MMA’s 2020 Fighter of the Year honors.
