Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson vs. Kevin Holland is set to headline a UFC Fight Night stacked card on December 3. The event will take place at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.
Following his loss to Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 279 earlier this year, ‘Trailblazer’ said he would consider retiring unless he was offered a big fight. His next fight comes against a worthy opponent in Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. Thompson and Holland are both great forwards, and their match promises to be an absolute fight. However, both fighters have suffered a losing streak in their last fights and will fight to keep their title hopes alive.
Latest additions to UFC Orlando on December 3
The biggest fighter to be added to the event undercard is the Aussie Tai Tuivasa. The quirky Aussie returns to the ring after suffering a defeat at the hands of Ciryl Gane in a Fight of the Night at UFC Fight Night: Paris. He takes on Sergei Pavlovich, who is currently riding a four-fight winning streak.
Another high profile match sees Rafael Dos Anjos move up to 170 pounds to fight a veteran of the game, Bryan Barberena. The former lightweight champion is making weight to face an in-form Barberena, who is on a three-fight winning streak and TKO’d Robbie Lawler in his last outing. He also earned back-to-back Fight of the Night bonuses against Matt Brown and Robbie Lawler.
For ‘RDA’ it’s a chance to get back to winning ways after suffering a knockout loss to lightweight Rafael Fiziev in July this year.
