The UFC‘s loud mouth according to Dana White has found himself a fight. Kevin Holland (17-5) was all set to fight last week at UFC Vegas 5. He was scheduled to take on Trevin Giles.
However, just before the fighters made the walk for their fight, Giles fainted in the back. Giles had to be taken to the hospital for further evaluation.
Holland had a good attitude about the whole thing, but was incredibly frustrated that he wasn’t able to fight at UFC Vegas 5. Dana White said the in post-fight press conference that they would find him a quick fight. Looks like they’ve found that fight.
Kevin Holland gets his wish — he’s expected to face LFA and Bellator veteran Joaquin Buckley at #UFCVegas6 on Saturday night #UFC https://t.co/8YveJ6FY7t

Holland gets UFC newcomer
It was reported today that Holland would be taking on Joaquin Buckley (10-2) this weekend at UFC Vegas 6. Buckley is a veteran of LFA and Bellator.
Buckley enters his UFC debut coming off back-to-back TKO victories in LFA. He just fought back on July 31st against Jackie Gosh.
Buckley’s fight against Gosh was actually a rematch. Gosh was one of the men to hold a victory over Buckley so it was big for Buckley to get that fight back. Buckley is in shape and he’s ready for a fight.
Buckley is naturally a welterweight, but he will be fighting Holland at 185 pounds. It’s a huge opportunity for Buckley getting his UFC debut against a personality like Kevin Holland.
