Holland on the fight’s key moment

“Not quick – I just had visions of ending him. I was the underdog. I haven’t been the underdog in a fight since Thiago Santos. I was the underdog, and I was like, ‘What the heck is going on here? I’m the underdog to a guy that has less fights that me. No way possible. I’m going to smoke him like a blunt.’ And I smoked him like a blunt.”

Holland on changes before the fight

“I worked on my diet. I started working with a meal company and started eating properly. I got back to the bread and butter – training hard, practicing my forms again like old-school kung fu. I’m staying true to martial arts.”

Holland on what he wants next

“I didn’t want (a fight with Marvin Vettori). I did not want that fight. I was like, ‘Nah, he’s a cool dude.’ He’s big. The first time I ever met him, he was really nice to me. … But you don’t shake my hand and then go online and drop a post. That’s not manly. It upset me. If you’re going to play that role … you go online when you could’ve just talked to me when you see me? P***y. Straight p***y. Not a man at all. … (Expletive) Marvin Vettori. He’s a snake. He’s a dirty dog snake, and I’m going to (expletive) him up when I get the chance.”
