After UFC Vegas 6 in August 2020, Khamzat Chimaev and Kevin holland they had a backstage altercation. Until now, not many details were known but the Russian fighter detailed what happened while speaking recently with ZubaTV.
What happened between Khamzat Chimaev and Kevin Holland?
Holland. He commented on something in an Instagram post about me … He wrote something like ‘everything is fine, but where is your mask? You can infect ‘. Something like that. I approached him at the hotel and asked, ‘What did you mean by that?’ He replied, ‘I really don’t remember, but what about that?’ Or something like that. I grabbed his neck and pushed him. Then when people grabbed me, it started blah, blah, blah. Typical American thing. Just talking without doing anything.
Perhaps in the future the two fighters will have the opportunity to fight copper in the cage. At the moment, Khamzat Chimaev is finalizing the preparations to face this Saturday Li Jingliang on UFC 267. Meanwhile, Kevin Holland plans to face Kyle daukaus on UFC Vegas 42 on November 13. Although the two actually fight in different divisions, Chimaev does so at 170 pounds while Holland at 185 pounds.
