UFC Fight Night live updates, results and highlights from Kevin Holland vs. Derek Brunson

Top ten middleweights Kevin Holland and Derek Brunson clash in the UFC Fight Night headliner.

Kevin Holland looks to continue his torrid run in his first UFC main event on Saturday when he battles Derek Brunson at UFC Fight Night from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Holland took the MMA world by storm in 2020. He competed five times in the final seven months, winning all of them including four via stoppage. Most recently, Holland notched the biggest victory of them of all when he knocked out former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in the first round.

Meanwhile, Brunson looks to take down another rising star. In his last time out, Brunson stopped Edmen Shahbazyan in the third round back in August. The perennial middleweight contender is riding a three-fight winning streak since losing to current middleweight kingpin Israel Adesanya at UFC 230 back in November 2018.

If Holland can secure a victory on top of the marquee, he will extend his winning streak to six and vault himself into the top five. A win for Brunson puts him in the top five and closer to that elusive title shot. 

DAZN News will have coverage of the main card starting at 10 p.m. ET.
