Holland defeated debutant Charlie Ontiveros by oral submission and became the first UFC fighter to claim four wins in 2020. He joined Gegard Mousasi and Israel Adesanya as the third UFC middleweight division and won four fights in a calendar year.
Kevin Holland immediately went out of the cage to Israel Adesanya and “The Last Stylebender” replied back.
After the event, Adesanya told the The Schmo that he thinks Kevin Holland is “just a fan” who doesn’t know what to do with his emotions.
Israel Adesanya shoots Kevin Holland
The middleweight champ called Kevin Holland in the interview and said he was disrespectful when approaching him at the hotel where they all stayed. Israel Adesanya said he thinks Holland is a fan, but instead of addressing him like that, he should sign a contract to fight him in the octagon.
“He’s just a fan. When the cameras weren’t on and we were in the hotel, he didn’t bark like that. But he was a little disrespectful. It is what it is. Sometimes fans just have wrong feelings, they don’t know where to put it. But I’m just saying you can be a fan of mine, but you can still sign on the dotted line and get a kick. “
When asked if it would really come to Kevin Holland challenging the reigning middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya said Holland had to decide.
However, with the attitude that Holland has, Adesanya did not believe that he would make it far enough in the company.
“I don’t have to decide. He has to decide that. But with this attitude I don’t see him going that far. All he has to do is humble himself and realize what position he is in. And yes he has the skills I’m not ashamed to say I like his fighting style. I think he’s stupid. But when you approach someone like that … it’s just stupid. “
Israel Adesanya meanwhile changes a weight above the light heavyweight division to face champion Jan Blachowicz.
UFC President Dana White confirmed at the press conference that Robert Whittaker, who is currently not ready to fight Adesanya, is not stopping The Last Stylebender from fighting for the £ 205 title.
